six new houses, three apartments, and a new co-op convenience store
Stagg Architects conceived, detailed and delivered this design, for the construction of a new food store for the Co-Op, along with nine new dwellings. The design was carefully developed to enable the provision of a large open floor-plate within a village setting. Careful attention was paid to deliveries and the function of the store so that this was acceptable to the operator while also respecting the amenity and privacy of the new houses adjacent. The project completed on site in Autumn 2015.
