2A Lindley Road is an unusual triangular plot forming the point at which two roads converge, Lindley Road and Sedgwick Road. The shape of the plot is defined by the acute angle of the two streets and their relationship to one another.
Having previously been occupied by a house (visible on a previous OS map), the now underutilised land wedged between the two roads currently dissolves the junction between the streets and the volumes that define the site.
The scheme is a new two bedroom family dwelling with open plan living, generous spaces, and excellent amenities. Our design directly responds to the triangular plot with the first floor level offset from the ground level and the two volumes pivoting over one another to follow the splay of the site and follow the converging roads. The volumes are overlapped and bound in such a way that the proposed building hinges around the curved rear wall, allowing the building to respond to both axis, creating an intersection that connects the currently disassociated streets. The circular brickwork to the rear corner of the building both softens the corner and prevents any part of the building at first floor level from sitting on the boundary line.
