This site in east Leeds is partly occupied by a derelict public house with the remainder of the site cleared land. IDC have been instructed to design two small apartment blocks on the site together with the renovation and extension of the existing building.

This proposal centres on the professional support the client requires to secure planning approval for the whole site and it was considered beneficial to aesthetically link the converted pub building with the new apartment blocks. Two identical blocks of 7 apartments are illustrated, each incorporating a substantially sized penthouse apartment at 3rd floor level.

One of the key site constraints that had to be addressed was the appropriate positioning of the blocks to avoid a six metre sewer easement.
