New town houses in Alresford, Hampshire

A terrace of modest four bedroom town houses on a sensitive site in Broad Street, Alresford. The houses replace a redundant petrol station that was incongruous with the architecture of the principal market town route. Each house has an integral garage, detailed to relate to the shop fronts and covered gateways, which are such a feature of this street. The garage doors are recessed behind the front elevation to reduce their impact on the street and to provide a suitable space for a discrete bin store. The scale of the street is maintained by pairing two of the houses and treating the third as a separate unit. The external walls are brick or block with render, the roofs are clay tile, and simple classical details in render are applied to various window openings. The result is a series of buildings that sit comfortably within the streetscape, mirroring the form, scale and detailing of the surrounding properties.
