Mixed-use Development; Kettering

This scheme has recently been submitted for planning approval. The project brief is complex, involving the redevelopment of a prominent town centre corner site in this market town. Currently, there is a vacant former hotel building on the site. The proposed scheme comprises a new restaurant at ground floor addressing the market square with a new corner building becoming a focal point. 29 residential units are proposed in a mixture of new build and converted historic buildings. The introduction of a landscaped courtyard at first floor to the centre of the site becomes a sustainable feature opening up the centre of the block and enhancing the quality of the residential units with outlook to this landscaped area.
