Affordable Homes

Affordable Homes

‘People first architecture’, delivers for people now and the future, with low maintenance and running costs. Contemporary issues in Housing at higher density are noise, privacy and respect of the wider community. Our design decisions incorporate these aspects to create true sustainable and respectful development for people.

The 14 unit scheme of 4 houses and 10 flats marks a distinct change in approach championed by YOOP Architects to provide housing focused on the issues of ‘liveable homes’ with ‘people first architecture’.

The scheme (see image below)  focuses on quality private amenity space and noise. The front of the building has a screen type wall which mediates between the street and homes. This allows residents to feel as if they are not on show. The screen solution also respects the wider community to screen any items on balconies which can negatively disrupt the visual appearance of a scheme. Noise between dwellings is a contemporary issue with increased densities. The scheme returns to very robust solid construction so residents can enjoy their own home while not affecting their neighbour.
