Brook Street Polegate

Wealden District Council

Frankham Consultancy Group have been appointed by Wealden District Council to provide architectural services for new build affordable housing in Brook Street, Polgate.

This will include the provision of six, one bed dwellings arranged as two maisonette flats facing onto Brook Street and four, one bed apartments arranged over two levels to the rear of the site.

Working closely with the Client, Frankham have provided a simple and clear arrangement of the buildings which relates to the Street and its immediate context. The maisonette flats are arranged so that the living area has access to an amenity space for the ground floor flat and a balcony for the first floor flat, both of which overlook the rear garden.

The buildings will feature quality materials chosen for their robustness and appropriateness. They will be sympathetic to the neighbouring Victorian properties, but present contemporary, sustainable re-interpretation of this precedent.
