MADE were approached by a small developer to better utilise a site where a dilapidated bungalow stood in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield.
The brief was to provide seven luxury apartments. MADE 's proposals were to provide four standard and three duplex apartments. This assisted with scaling the building to a single storey on the side nearest to the neighbouring bungalow.
The scheme also helps to address the corner site better by providing active frontage to both roads.
The simple modern scheme resolved the massing issues and ensured that the new building was not taller than the adjacent properties.
