Northumberland Residential Development
Location: Beadnell, Northumberland
Sector: Residential, Masterplanning
MawsonKerr have gained full detailed planning permission for 9 luxury homes in coastal Northumberland. Working closely with the local planners and clients the contemporary design maximises the coastal views and creates a ‘placemaking’ high quality sustainable development, which complements the area of outstanding natural beauty.
The project includes four pairs of 4/5 bed semi detached houses and a large 5 bedroom detached house. The asymmetrical approach to the elevations provide visual interest with vertical elements creating focal points and visual markers. A variety of window sizes, feature windows and full height glazing reflect the internal importance of that particular space and enhance the primary views towards the coast and bay. This is further enhanced by the contemporary glazed balconies to the rear of the properties. It is proposed the buildings use low energy design principles such as orientation, high levels of insulation and air tightness along with renewable energy attributes.
