This project consisted of a replacement new build structure sat within the heart of Llandudno. The original building formed a commercial property which was beyond viable conversion.
The project had a number of key constraints that required consideration at a very early stage in order to ensure the scheme was financially viable.
Such constraints consisted of a prominent corner plot within the local conservation area, limited external amenity for storage and safe working, alongside the site being subject to pluvial flooding at the basement level.
By incorporating a contemporary design with traditional principles we were able to provide a striking piece of architecture within a sensitive location.
Through the inclusion of a mansard roof we were also able to provide additional apartments within the roof space which ensured there was sufficient supply of affordable housing within the local area. Cartrefi Conwy’s mission is to ‘create communities to be proud of’ and we certainly felt that this new portfolio piece was an exemplary example of both improving and evolving local communities.
