The development is intended to house residents from nearby multi storey flats which are programmed for demolition. The resident group is primarily elderly or aging. The brief therefore called for flats that were able to support the developing needs of an aging population. This resulted in flats which achieved more generous space standards that is the norm. The development is located on a north facing, steeply sloping, linear site with the benefit of panoramic views. The design responded to the site by ensuring all properties exploited the views and by allowing light to penetrate through the site. Internally each flat was planned so that the primary living space enjoyed views in more than one direction.
