Housing at Wilmot Road


The Blurb

The proposed development infills the gap in the terrace along Wilmot Road and involves the creation of a 2-storey front block with additional accommodation in the roof and the erection of a 1 and a half storey rear block with a total of No.6 units.

The front building has been designed to complement the streetscape of Wilmot Road, by utilizing a palette of materials that includes London yellow stock facing bricks with details of hit and miss bricks.

The rear building is subservient to the front block and echoes the industrial style of the original building. The facades are proposed in dark grey insulated zinc cladding and provide a special industrial character to the new development. The panel installation is a standing seam system creating vertical stripes with irregular rhythm.
