The proposal is for a four storey new build, a mixed use development that consists of retail in the basement and at ground floor level and residential accommodation at first and second floors. The approved scheme is considerate to its residential surroundings and minimises the disturbance to the adjacent buildings and environment.

The design team had to consider the best suited way of enhancing the existing street scene of London Road and provide a contextual urban response of appropriate mass and height to create a coherent and legible street scape from Farwig Lane at the same time. The building design also needed to encompass a high degree of longevity, energy efficiency, sustainability, and a clear sense of context.

 

A green wall will be installed externally on the north west elevation of the building as well as a green roof. A green roof has many benefits at economic, ecological and societal levels by providing a rainwater buffer, purifying the air, reducing the ambient temperature, regulating the

temperature, saving energy and encouraging biodiversity.  Living green walls make a breath-taking statement by creating alluring and inviting environments. They are as equally impressive in appearance as they are purveyors of good health; the plants in the walls work as a natural air-filtration system that building occupants can enjoy. Living green elements are a sure-fire way to enhance a building’s visuals, improve air quality as well as employees and occupants’ alertness and energy levels.
