This is a modest development providing affordable rented flats and a commercial unit on a small island site. The architects have chosen to reflect the differing urban natures, on either sides of the site. The busy road side elevations are clad in a precise, dark, hard Tilebrick, punctuated by dark-framed windows. The quieter sides splay out in a series of white rendered walls, with white-framed patio doors, behind the vertical struts of balconies, which form a sort of yashmak for privacy and shading.
