Following the years theme, this project is based around the Nottingham Canal. This time the focus on a site to the North of the canal which is in need of redevelopment.
The site can be found by using the longitude and latitude of 52o56'46.5"N & 1o10'13.8"W.
The area is full of residential buildings which form a private site. However there are many issues with it, especially in regards to layout, from the whole master plan to the positioning of the apartments themselves.
As a group, the site will be redesigned using historical influence and better use of perimeter blocks.
Following this, an example of one perimeter block will be taken and divided amongst the group. From there, each section shall be designed for individual clients.
Although the design is individual, we will continue to work as a group to ensure our designs work with one another so that the whole neighbourhood works as one.
The client which I have been assigned to develop and design for is that of the 'live/ work' typology.
