Project: The design and delivery of social housing – 10 Apartments and 13 dwellings
Client: Yorkshire Housing
Size: 19 476.37 sqft
One of the commissions resulting from our long- term relationship with YHL, the scheme at Chain Lane Knaresborough comprises of 10 self-contained flat units in a single building, with 13 individual adjacent dwellings, providing a mixture of two and three bed accommodation.
Although the scheme layout provides vehicular and pedestrian access from within the site, units arranged along Chain Lane itself were designed with dual frontages, as the LA Planning Dept. were keen for the project to make a positive impact on the larger streetscape. Hence the rear elevations of these dwellings were treated more formally, and private external space were enclosed with open railings, contributing to the schemes less introverted feel, in comparison to similar developments.
