Project: 4 Family Houses – Aylestone Gate
Client: Private Developer
Main Contractor: JDW
Structural Engineer: C2 Designs
OHA were appointed by a successful local developer and the main contractor to design a small contemporary residential development on the eastern outskirts of Hereford City. The site is prominently located as a gateway into the city from the main arrival point from Worcester and the M5, as well as being within Aylestone Conservation Area. A modern flat roofed design comprised of a series of interlocking blocks maximised interior space while minimising building height and visual impact. The houses have open plan ground floor plans with large private spaces on the first floor created by a combination of cantilevered timber-clad projections and set-back balconies to take in views over the Lugg Flats.
