The site is tucked away behind the buildings along Anton Street and is accessed via a narrow access road off it. The existing factory was demolished to create 6 units of mainly 3 bed townhouses and one commercial B1 unit. The site, being orientated to the garden facades of the existing neighbouring buildings, has a leafy, generous feel. The houses were positioned to create amenity space either side of the dual aspect units. The units have an airy feel, with great views on the upper floors, even though on plan the site might look quite densely populated.
The Site with the Existing Factory.
Narrow access to the enclosed site meant a construction method of small elements like brick and blockwork. The development was built without the use of a crane.
