Tasou Associates, recent runners up in the Urban Splash Northshore competition, have been granted planning at committee for two new family dwellings.

The two houses, described by committee members as ‘uncompromisingly contemporary’, are sited in the New River Conservation Area. Planning officer Ashley Niman praised the scheme’s response to the local context and its sensitive scale and materiality.

The house facing Cruickshank Street is formed of two interlocking volumes, one faced in render and the other constructed using hand cut slate bricks. The façade is a subtle shifting composition of structural glass, render and slate planes.

The second house, discretely set back from the street and surrounded by Sycamore trees, replaces an existing derelict building. The house is clad in cedar shingles to blend with the trees around the site, providing a texture which responds to the stock brickwork of the adjacent buildings.
