The proposal aims to reinvigorate and repair the urban fabric of Morpeth Road creating a series of residential units. The architecture is informed by the gabled ends of the adjacent terraced houses. Inverting the form of each unit creates a street-scape of concertinaed facades bringing interest to the current utilitarian street scene.
Each facade is amalgamated into the boundary treatment to create a strong continual frontage with a contextual rhythm. In turn, a defensible space in front of each property is formed to create a more protected and landscaped environment also defining the entry of each unit. The scheme promotes the idea of indoor/outdoor living offering dual aspect views With each unit having access to at least one outdoor private space (located to the east and west sides), the units to benefit from morning and afternoon sun.
