Private Residential Accommodation
The Chandlers provides increased accommodation, car parking and market profile to the existing site through a new additional build. The design knits a corner Grade II Listed building and a 1980’s council build on a tight, city-facing conservation area.
The new elevation comprises a grid of piers and ‘lintels’, each the scale of an individual apartment. The red brick façade makes reference to the vernacular material of the surrounding buildings, both and is juxtaposed by a ‘layer’ of cedar weatherboarding. A copper-clad box incorporates fifth floor apartments with views south towards the River Aire, and creates a dramatic addition to the skyline.
The Calls itself is a narrow street and views along the street tend to be oblique. The deep window reveals afford depth and shadow, complimenting and distinguishing the three primary façade materials, creating a sense of solidity and permanence.
