Brunswick Place is a development of one and two bedroom unique luxury apartments built with the finest of details internally and externally. Five spacious one bedroom and eleven two bedroom luxury apartments are ideal spaces for modern open plan living, full of light and vitality.
Brunswick Place located in the market town of Biggleswade on a corner plot at the junction of Rose Lane and Sun Street in a visually prominent location was occupied by a detached five bedroom Victorian Villa set back in a corner of a third of an acre plot. The perimeter of the site was surrounded by seven very large oak and horse chestnut trees protected by a Preservation Order, three of which unfortunately had to be removed because of their poor condition.
The scheme won at appeal, has created sixteen one and two bedroom executive unique luxury apartments with sixteen parking spaces of which 6 are undercroft. The building comprises a series of linked elements and roof hierarchies to create a well articulated built form.
All the apartments have a ‘Very Good’ Ecohomes rating which means they are efficient, well insulated and have a low carbon footprint.
Details including roof finials, slate roof, bracketed deep eaves, hooded circular window, stone strings and dressings and the brick plinth combine with a contempary use of glass to create a polite but fascinating reinterpretation of the local Victorian villa form. It is clear that the scheme design draws and reflects a wide variety of detailing from surrounding buildings within Biggleswade as well as the existing Brunswick House which it replaces. The massing of the scheme is devised to form a focal point at the corner of the important road junction, stepping down towards the residential boundaries in a well mannered way to respect and enhance the street scape.
A superb design and attention to detail in all respects has added a unique building to the existing diversity of buildings in the area producing a high density development maximising the site and location to the fullest with spacious and light homes to be proud of.
