30th April saw the start of work on this project for Guildford Borough Council. Previously a disused pub and car park, this site will now provide 18 units of affordable housing within two blocks, together with parking, cycle store, recycling area and associated hard and soft landscaping.
The design of the two blocks has been carefully considered to provide a visual link between the existing buildings to either side. They will be predominantly two-storey in height, with Block 2 having a third floor stepped back from the main footprint of the building and thereby allowing balconies. Materials will include aluminium, artificial stone, blue and brindle bricks, and the use of sedum roofs to provide a modern architectural feature.
This project takes a brownfield site of limited amenity value and rejuvenates it with an exciting new development. It will provide a contribution towards Guildford Borough Council's housing obligations under the National Planning Policy Framework and will result in the significant visual improvement of the location.
