The commission concerns the provision of Architectural services in relation to the delivery of 86 no. new build residential dwellings for a site in the Edge Hill area on the southern edge of Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
This particular site had previously been the third and final phase of a larger residential development which, for reasons related to the economic downturn, has yet to be completed and has been purchased by a developer who wishes to appoint S+SA Architects Limited for the provision of architectural services through to the completion of the scheme (we were also the appointed architects for the original project).
Further enhancements to the consented scheme were made, in liaison with the Local Authority Planning Department, to meet the clients aspirations for the site to deliver high quality residential accommodation. Value was added to the elevational treatments, materials and internal layouts and two additional units were added to the site layout.
The site topography is extremely challenging with significant level changes requiring a collaborative approach from the design team, led by S+SA Architects Limited, and the main contractor to develop an achievable and commercially viable design solution.
The project is currently under construction, with 57 units due for completion in spring 2016.
