Westlands Drive, Oxford
GreenSquare Group is a major provider of housing, regeneration, care and support and commercial services across Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. We have worked collaboratively with them since 2015 building over 80 dwellings.
This scheme was for the design and construction of 21 one-and-two bedroom rental flats, constructed within an existing estate on the outskirts of Oxford City. The site footprint was fairly restricted, being constrained by neighbouring properties to two sides and the busy spine road to the estate on the other two boundaries. There is a walkway bridge between the two blocks, and the central roof coverings were rationalised in order to provide the most cost-effective solution, and compliance with the requirements of the fire engineer.
The infusion of colours on the balconies provides a modern and unique appeal to the development however, the apartments remained homely and spacious inside.
The development also offers communal facilities including a garden area and parking for residents.
