The project continues our work on the former Smiths Industries housing estate at Bishops Cleeve for Rooftop Housing, which now extends to over a decade, transforming former garage sites into contemporary social housing.
The initial community consultation was carried out by Wayne Hemmingway (of Red or Dead fashion fame) and then we collaborated with Hemmingway Design on the design up to the planning application stage.

The apartments are thoughtfully designed with large open plan kitchen/living room areas, making the most of the living space and natural light. Each apartment also benefits from its own secure parking space and cycling storage facility in the basement, accessible from the side street.

Despite being a small site the design for a new build quality student accommodation had to negotiate a tricky change in level across the site, archaeological findings after the demolition of the house on the site, and fierce opposition from the neighbours opposed to student housing.
