Yurky Cross Architects has won planning approval for thirty new homes in the historic Oxford city centre.
The five storey design will deliver a mix of sixteen 1-bed and fourteen 2-bed apartments.
The successful design strategy has been informed by the long history of the site and its place in the established street patterns of Oxford city. The scheme re-creates the historic street frontage housing patterns of old Paradise Street, with a series of entrances to both individual houses and the two main circulation cores, that are designed to be highly visible, active features in the street-scene.
“We are delighted with the planning committees decision. Our vision for the site is to create a highly sustainable new housing project that reinvigorates a unique site” comments Mike Cross, Managing Director at Yurky Cross. “It has been a complex planning journey, not least since this project is inter-linked with another 140 unit riverside housing design at Gibbs Crescent, Oxford, both owned by housing provider A2Dominion Housing Group.”
