Built on the site of a disused car salesroom, this development comprises of four architecturally linked tower blocks, which will deliver 136 residential units, some of which will be privately rented and sold and some of which will be student accommodation.
Each building has its very own ‘character’, yet between the different parts of the development a harmonious ‘family’ effect is created amongst them. Each of these buildings functions as a singular, but together as a whole they create a family of structures that respond to environmental and building science considerations through their orientation and relative sitting, thus maximising their natural light and acoustic privacy.
The existing building is to be fully refurbished with the operational accommodation and appliance bays being retained at ground floor level.
Factory 2050 is the UK’s first fully reconfigurable assembly and component manufacturing facility for collaborative research.
