Proposed residential development comprising 6 appartments & parking, Shipley, West Yorkshire
Our brief for this project was to provide the client with a contemporary residential scheme on a fairly restricted site next to the Leeds-Liverpool canal in Shipley, West Yorkshire. The previous single storey building occupying the site is to be demolished as it’s life is expired.
The site is located just inside a conservation area, which meant that a parralel conservation consent had to be applied for, however, after some initial correspondence with the local Planning Authority it was considered that a contemporary residential scheme would be the most suitable development for the site, particularly given the nature of other similar recent developments in the immediate vicinity.
The development comprises 2 blocks of three storey accommodation which is split by a central circulation core and blue feature wall. A mix of render and stone has been used for the external walls, although a more vertical emphasis has been placed on this. Each appartment features 2 bedrooms and a large open-plan living aspect.
