Designed in partnership with modular homebuilder Boutique Modern and OSM Construction, this project replaced a disused council office building with 13 cutting-edge apartments providing much needed homes for local families. The aim of the development is to create desirable high-quality, sustainable and affordable homes using MMC.
The existing building, vacant since 2015, was found to be too expensive to modernise and convert and a conversion would not allow for efficient use of the site. The proposed design sought to replace the existing building with off-site manufactured modular apartments that are brought together over three stories around a bespoke stair and walkway pod system. The proposed arrangement is a highly efficient use of the site, allowing the formation of 13 units of mixed sizes.
