Falling Lane and Milburn Drive have a very mixed residential character with a variety of dwelling types ranging from large 1950’s semi-detached houses to later twentieth century terrace houses. The new residential development seeks to mediate these two scales and create a visual stepping along Milburn Drive whilst the primary elevation facing Falling Lane appears as a large scale single dwelling.

The aim is to provide high quality, generously proportioned modern accommodation with the apartments orientated to the south west and south east, with views over Falling Lane. The new building rises to a total of three floors with habitable rooms within the roof space, stepping down to two floors adjacent to the two storey dwelling on Milburn Drive. Its design succeeded in integrating it comfortably into the street scene, in scale, mass, and by using traditional architecture references in its detailing.
