Offset Architects were appointed to develop the site from the Sevenoaks Ambulance Station into affordable social housing. The scheme required us to obtain planning consent and provide technical working drawings for residential dwellings split over four blocks, including parking and external storage areas.
Whilst predominantly rural in character, the site was a design challenge being immediately adjacent to a supermarket and a number of other industrial buildings. The scheme submitted comprised 11 units, of which 3 were affordable homes, to provide an attractive affordable housing development. Whilst understanding that Offset Architects needed to meet the local planning authority's specific planning and design policies, we also had to think ahead for the fully affordable project required for Moat Housing which is subject to different and additional requirements.
Offset Architects were delighted to be a finalist in the Top Sixty Developments by Inside Housing.
