Elm Cottages is bounded by established residential properties, with the development enhancing and redefining the street frontage, having removed the previously unsightly derelict public house. The houses have been designed to reflect the aesthetic of residential dwellings within the vicinity by utilising traditional methods and materials. Red smooth faced brickwork, sits below traditional pitched roofs, covered with a black roof tile, blending in perfectly with the existing neighbouring properties to either side.
Six two and three bedroom homes, packaged into a pair of semi-detached and a terraced block. Internally, by removing walls between conventional rooms to the ground floor, natural light has been encouraged to flow, connecting indoor space with the outdoors. The inviting open layout provides connected spaces that are perfect for everyday living as well as formal entertaining. The large multi functional space looks harmonious and well-coordinated.
The house also encompassed under floor heating, log burner and MVHR to allow the building to be a energy efficient for future years.
This development was a finalist at the LABC Building Excellence Awards 2016 for Yorkshire and Humberside
