Project details

249 apartments are arranged in a splayed plan form with the sheltered spaces between the new apartment buildings open towards the historic parkland to the east. The buildings create a strong enclosure of the surrounding streets at the town centre edge and by reduction in enclosure and massing from 8 to 5 storeys west to east, they generate a transition between town centre and St Andrews Park.

All apartments have been designed to have a southerly aspect from the main living spaces, balconies and private gardens. Many of the apartments benefit from a dual aspect and direct views of the park, with generously proportioned window providing light and airy interiors.

Car and cycle parking is contained within an undercroft to reduces the impact on the public realm, and the top of the parking level has been landscaped to provide amenity space for the sole use of the residents.
