Project Location: Marble Alley, Studley


This redevelopment of existing retail and commercial premises into nine new apartments satisfies a demand for affordable homes in the village of Studley. The principal sustainable design consideration is to reuse the existing structure and face it with a pallet of materials, brick, Western red cedar and insulated render. The one side of the building will be traditional to match the existing street scene; the opposite side will be modern with aluminium windows, cedar panels and insulated render. The project will exceed the current Building Regulations in energy performance by using a selection of recycled materials, renewable technologies such as domestic combined heat and power (micro-CHP) boilers and supplementary solar hot water systems. The project has received Planning Approval.
