Located on a prominent corner with excellent transport links, the proposed design creates a strong urban presence, presenting a landmark image for the area.

The development itself will make use of local materials, such as reconstituted stone and red brick and a stepped height transition. This not only matches the Victorian and Edwardian architecture on Kingston Road, but also integrates the building within the residential context on Rutlish Road to minimise the impact on the neighbouring properties in terms of daylight, sunlight and overlooking.

The local roofscape contains multiple examples of slate tiled pitched roofs with dormer windows which has been incorporated into the scheme as well.

Due to the site’s compact nature and regular shape, the development will follow an efficient courtyard layout, providing dual aspects apartment and outside communal space for future residents. It is worth nothing, the scheme has gone through various design revisions to maximise the number of dual aspect apartments.
