Project Details: Oldfield Drive
Client: Grosvenor Homes Ltd
Location: Heswall, Wirral
The site has been developed with a series of high quality designed detached family dwellings. Their form and the selection of materials blends modern design with reference to the natural features evident in the surrounding context.
The site was originally the extensive garden of a large property, which was situated along a private residential road on the northern edge of Heswall and had previously been divided up by the previous owners. The development of new family housing enables a more sustainable approach for the use of large areas of land that have become redundant spaces, which property owners no longer require and use.
The open views of the adjacent farmland can be appreciated through the design of large windows, which also maximise opportunities for high levels of natural light within the dwellings. The houses create a retained feeling of the local character, as the site design incorporates the mature trees and landscape, maintaining the established natural screening and attractiveness.
