Roughaw Close Phase 2 Residential Development – North Yorkshire
Skipton, North Yorkshire
Bowman Riley designed a new residential development of 12 two-bedroom apartments for older people ion the site of a former sheltered housing scheme in a picturesque location overlooking the canal in Skipton.
This development follows the successful first phase comprising eight two bedroom apartments in a new building on the site.
We successfully managed the planning process to include consultation with the local ward councillors, the community and residents of the existing housing scheme.
The design maximises the site’s potential by orientating the living areas within the apartments to take advantage of the beautiful aspect overlooking the canal.
The attractive development is scaled to be in keeping with the surrounding context and is extremely sympathetic to the local setting.
The much needed affordable homes are designed to have a flexible internal room layout, which allows each home to adapt to the resident’s needs.
Designed with sustainability and security as key factors; Roughaw Close achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and Secured by Design Part 2 accreditation.
