Continuing our campaign for Mending Nottingham, we have explored a potential development plot in Mapperley Park.Â REDMAKâ€™s exploration seeks to produce a rigorous scheme that complies with ideals of current Urban Design, which will provide for a more pleasant housing community.
REDMAKâ€™s proposal achieves this by designing and using a series of sideways looking houses which joins onto the existing neighbouring properties to the North East and South West REDMAK Architects have designed a layout:
- Respecting the Perimeter Block principal whilst accepting that the site dimensions are too constrained for a traditional perimeter block [between 60m and 100mm measured across the block from centre line of roads]
- Using housing for the majority of the development l Creating sense of place and development character by building flats on the corners where back garden space is naturally tight.
- The scheme has: 9 2Bed Code 5 Houses 17 3Bed Code 5 Houses 4 2Bed Code 4 Flats
- Provides the developer with potential15% profit with an approximate residual land value of Â£1.3m
