Client: EMH Group

Project Brief: Design and build 32 new affordable houses

Services: Architecture

We have been appointed by EMH Group to build 32 new homes on a redundant site in Leicester.

East Midlands Homes Housing & Regeneration Ltd purchased a vacant site on Warwick Road in Littlethorpe, Leicester with the intention of building new affordable housing for the local area.

The existing site occupies an area of approximately 8,200 sqm. It was home to a local authority depot containing a mixture of offices, warehouses and workshops.

 

Currently, there is a demand for affordable housing in the area and a substantial lack of rural social housing. The intention is to build 16 new homes for rent and 16 for shared ownership. These will be a mixture of bungalows, 2-bed semi-detached homes and 3-bed semi-detached homes.

The homes orientation and distance from boundaries will maintain privacy for new and neighbouring homes. The design of the homes will be contemporary yet respect the local vernacular of Littlethorpe in their use of materials, scale and massing on the site.

This project has been submitted for planning permission.
