This contemporary apartment scheme overlooking the river in Cambridge has been given planning consent. The scheme consists of 14 duplex apartments as well as 2 one-bed apartments and 3 penthouses on the roof. The design has strongly expressed cross-walls made of a local Cambridge brick. These are set out in a fan arrangement that creates a facetted elevation following the line of the river.
This 1.95-hectare site in Charlton is currently occupied by a large, single storey industrial building and surrounded by small-scale terraced residential streets. the local authority and the GLA have accepted that the site is suitable for a high-density residential scheme, providing the design is to a high standard.
