Sovini Homes/ Carrol Build
The plot sits adjacent to a train station giving direct access to Southport and Liverpool and the wider transport network.
Whilst the proposed houses are relatively modest when compared to many nearby properties they are still substantial volumes. To bring these volumes down to a more human scale a number of architectural tools have been employed.
By avoiding strictly rectangular floor plans the buildings respond to the various interface issues presented by the site. Additionally this stepping of the plans means the buildings present differing facets of their architecture depending on where they are viewed from.
Feature windows are introduced projecting into the street facing gable providing vertical emphasis and interest to the street elevations and naturally lighting full height volumes to the master bedrooms. The gable eaves project forward of the brick facade casting shadows and further modelling the elevation.
