Project Description

Coalwharf Road

Cambridgeshire, UK
2013

Our proposal at Coalwharf Road pioneers a sustainable development that is inspired by the dramatic character of
the nearby Georgian architecture and industrial harbour side history of Wisbech. The scheme will create publicly
accessible areas at ground level with retail units while providing 12 residential units on the upper levels.

In both exteriors and interiors we propose using wood extensively in conjunction with other materials. By making the
most of the advantages of wood in combination with conrete, we will try to create a building in which it will be
a pleasure to live, work and visit.

The project aims for Code for Sustainable Homes – min CSH rating of Level 4
