Project Overview

Project: The design and delivery of contemporary social housing – 6 Apartments and 10 dwellings
Client: Yorkshire Housing
Size: 10,500 sq ft
Status: Completed

The project provides 16 new dwellings of mixed tenure. The site layout was very linear exempting us from using any typical building layout. We designed layouts to be staggered to use the available space more effectively.

The area’s original housing is predominantly 2 storeys, however it also has 3 storey flats. By placing the 3 storey apartment element centrally to the scheme a pivot form is created off which the housing elements are stepped to each side.

The scheme was designed to achieve an Eco-Homes rating of “very good”.

Disability Action Yorkshire have a long relationship with SSA-Architects which began with the design of our residential home for younger adults with physical disabilities when they impressed us with their commitment to ensuring that the design aided full accessibility and independence.  They have remained firm supporters of and amongst other events run an annual bike ride raising much needed funds to support our work.  They show a genuine interest in our work and in the ongoing needs and aspirations of disabled people.  We consider SSA-Architects to be true and valued friends of the charity.
