The proposed development provides an excellent opportunity to develop a gateway into Cheltenham and provide a much needed redevelopment of a Brownfield site for positive use that will only improve the viability of the area and add to the local economy by way of bringing more people into the area.
The development comprises 55 high quality self contained flats. Also included will be shared common ancillary services including bedsits for guests and staff, residents lounge/ diner, gym, spa, health and beauty suite, hair salon, laundry facilities and care team /manager’s office.
The layout has concentrated the community facilities to the ground floor so that the residents can interact with one another. There is also a 4 storey high atrium starting on the first floor as an open social space all the way to the roof. In addition there is a roof garden with water features, timber pergola, trees, and planting for the resident’s comfort and pleasure.
The development is large in relation to the site; therefore to prove no overlooking occurred and that the building fitted well within the local vernacular we had to demonstrate this with sketches and 3d rendered elevations.
