Whersted Road Flats

Project: Whersted Road Flats

Client: Fastracker Ltd & Flagship Housing Association

Contract Value: £800,000

This development of 10 flats was designed to form a distinctive focal point and provide a pivotal feature to an island site, close to the riverside area of Ipswich.

The shape of the site determined the footprint of the development and generally follows the back edge of surrounding pavements. There are three 2-bed flats on each of the 3 floors with a penthouse flat on the top floor. The floor plan is stepped back with mitred corners to provide additional modelling and help the building turn the corner.

All of the flats above ground level have balconies to their living areas, with curved glass balustrades. Internally, the layout has been carefully designed to ensure that all main habitable rooms are orientated for maximum views and daylight.
