The Clearing is our first project designing for our partner development company Findlay Fraher. The proposal is for 8 No. sustainable residential units, clustered around a central garden and communal courtyard.
The building takes the abstract view of ‘The Forest’ establishing a building that is the woodland protecting the central clearing – the garden. The proposal is contemporary yet sensitive to the existing context, drawing from the surrounding buildings’ vernacular. Green roofs and planter walls scatter up and over the building with a two three storey open air garden atrium for residents.
