The scale of this mix-use development was carefully designed to integrate within the existing context. Whilst the site is not located in a conservation area, it sits within an established late Victorian street pattern, at a significant interchange of three roads. Thus, there was a need for the design to carefully address the neighbouring amenity space, sense of enclosure, and overlooking.
The development provides an ideal opportunity for a contemporary addition and incorporates robust and high quality materials of brick and metal clad roof which sit comfortably within the existing context. To minimize the impact to the Hoe Street scene and neighouring buildings, the third floor is set back. The front parapet steps down to 11 Hoe Street, respecting the lower scale of the adjacent three storey terraces,
The façade has a sense of variety, texture, and depth due to the three bay fenestration at the ground level and recessed balconies. All fenestration was designed with a vertical emphasis in response to the existing Victorian context, favoring vertical sash windows.
At ground level, a single retail space faces the whole of the frontage to Hoe Street returning on to Aubrey Street.
There are 4 flats entered at the 1st floor where Flat 1 is a duplex arrangement with three bedrooms and bathrooms at the ground floor, 3 flats at the 2nd floor, and 2 flats at the 3rd floor. All residential units have been provided with private amenity space accessed from the living / dining / kitchen areas, and are carefully positioned in relation with the windows in the neighbouring buildings at 59 Aubrey Road.
