Challenge

This prestigious Arts and Crafts housing development comprises 20 units and garages, in the sought after area of Branksome Park. The developer set out to make every property within Baillie Park different and to construct them with traditional materials using traditional construction techniques. They were striving for a quality with this project that does not feature in most developments.

Solution

A real feeling of space was achieved within this development the properties have steep pitched roofs and dormer windows and some have 2 storeys within the roof space to create more space inside. Dreadnought’s Red Blue tiles provide the rich and naturally varied colour pallet which make Baillie Park so attractive and unusual.

Result

Vertical and horizontal architectural elements comprising sweeping roofs with asymmetrical composition creates interest and vitality. The use of traditional materials helped to create a beautiful environment in which to live. The Local Planning officer commented “this development enhances the character of Branksome Park adding to the rich architectural language of that area."
