The houses form part of phase II of the overall Bridge Point development project which includes a mixed use arts space, riverside walk way and open landscaped space. The housing element forms two parts of the scheme – the first element consists of 5 new river front 3 storey houses which are link detached at ground floor level. Each property will have parking spaces for several cars, with a ground floor plan consisting of utility space, store room, hobby room and hall lobby.
Each property is serviced via a generous stairwell and a 3 person lift on each floor. The design has a angled front elevation in dark stained timber cladding, with a set back recess between each property in brickwork. The set back creates a private recessed roof terrace for each property, as well as a a south facing terrace form the main living space on first floor with river views. The houses are designed with an open plan living, kitchen and dining space to maximise the river frontage and natural light.
The houses have been designed predominantly in brickwork with some timber infill details to give a more industrial feel to the development to suit its context.
