An exclusive, gated development of 18, high quality apartments and 15 car parking spaces located on the fringe of Kingston town centre. The project involves skilfully redeveloping and extending the existing building to a high standard, creating 2 x 1 bed, 14 x 2 bed and 2 x 3 bed apartments. The site is also to be completely re-landscaped, providing a positive benefit to the residents of lime and maple court.
The interior includes high quality finishes with a modern minimalist design. The strategy was to bring light into the space, cleverly utilising a restricted space by introducing large windows and cantilevered balconies facing the rear, side and front with etched glass screens creating fresh, spacious apartments. The day-lighting study has demonstrated that all the existing flats will continue to receive a good level of daylight.
The exterior is composed of a soft terracotta colour cladding with a combination of red and chalk coloured brickwork and rendering, giving a graceful appearance to the exterior. The top storey exterior is enveloped with grey cladding and has been set further back reducing any perceived bulk of the building and minimising the visual impact of the building. Furthermore the elevations of the building have been recessed and cladded with different materials to articulate the appearance, and again reduce its perceived bulk to its surroundings.
