Known as ‘The R1SE’, this seven-storey building consists of 67 apartments and 6 commercial units (totalling 7,500sqft). The development includes a basement car park providing 35 residents spaces. Construction value £8 million.
The scheme was designed to break up the different uses both visually and practically so that they could successfully occupy this restricted urban site. The metal clad elevated box to the lant street elevation housed the commercial units with the quieter rear of the site utilised for a low rise residential block. Forge achieved planning permission, and was later novated to undertake the working drawings for the contractor Rooff Ltd.
