2009 Coach Yard,Herts

This project redevelops the site of a former coach works in the centre of St Albans, Hertfordshire.
The proposed residential development uses an interlocking sectional design, allowing each flat to maximise the number of windows onto the yard. A series of roof lights and light wells drop light into the deeper recesses of the plan. Traditional building materials reference the original use of the coach works and the local vernacular of timber construction. A small community would thus be established, centred around a landscaped courtyard and within walking distance of local shops and amenities.
