Our scheme for seven new family homes on a constrained conservation area site in Meole Brace, Shrewsbury, has received planning approval from Shropshire County Council.
The linear trackside nature of the site is reflected in the contemporary layered and linear forms of the new homes that also relate to historic trackside building forms. The detailing of the dwellings, built predominantly of red brick, including banding and textured bonds respond to local features within the conservation area.
Each of the four house types incorporate covered parking, a courtyard garden and a flexible plan. While each type is closely related they are varied to make the most of their position related to solar exposure and views across the adjacent allotments and to the Long Mynd. Some incorporate terraces, while others have double height spaces connecting the levels within them.
