Hampton Co-Op and Residential Development

The brief from the client was to provide a new retail unit with residential flats above, in the village of Hampton, near Peterborough.

The local planning authority wanted a building to sit on the corner of Eagle Way and St Edmunds Walk that would provide a presence and a focal point on this prominent corner plot. Given the head height required for the commercial premises, the ground floor had to be significantly higher than a normal dwelling. The design consideration was therefore to emphasise the horizontal features whilst breaking up the fa├žade with vertical features using different materials. The flats required personal outside space so balconies were planned on each corner. Now complete, the building sits comfortably within it`s surroundings of similar modern looking, new buildings.
