Shipston Road, Stratford On Avon
The construction of 11 No. 2, 3 and 4 bedroomed homes on an important gateway into Stratford On Avon. The Shipston Road site is bordered at the rear by a raised footpath created from the old Stratford to Moreton in Marsh tramway.
There are three distinctive styles. The Shipston Houses, facing Shipston Road, reflect the design of neighbours’ mainly red brick Victorian and Edwardian residences. The Mews Houses have dramatic double height entrance halls. The Tramway Houses, looking out across playing fields to the Avon, are eye-catching and contemporary. All the homes have top quality interior design and fittings.
The development is flood resilient. Buildings and linking infrastructure are raised in those areas at low to medium risk from river run-off from the road at the front and predicted potential impact of climate change on rainfall.
Rain gardens, permeable pacing and creative planting are just a few of the features that makes this development water friendly. There are also flood fringes on those raised homes to allow excess water to flow beneath, plus elevated parking and pedestrian access to dry land should a deluge strike.
The Project is designed by London based Baca Architects.
