Form of Contract Delivery Architects
Size 34 Luxury Apartments
Value £6.5 million
Year of Completion 2022
Two buildings of four and six storeys contain luxury apartments ranging from one to three-bedrooms, with every apartment in the main block having views overlooking the River Trent and the grand landscaped Victoria Embankment opposite.
Appointed by Peter James Homes to take the original plans and rework the internal layouts and external finishes to uplift the consented development in terms of design and quality of materials.
Redesign of the main apartment block so every apartment had a river view and chose materials to complement the neighbourhood to settle the development into its context.
Design uses contrasting black and cream brick for the main storeys, topped by elegant penthouses clad in dark grey finished steel rainscreen with a simple standing seam. In addition to anchoring the base of the buildings, the darker bricks are used as fine delineation, echoing the seams of the cladding and giving a graceful finish to the exterior. Stylish balconies complement the generous internal spaces.
