Victoria Court, Winchester

Completion Date Spring 2019

Contract Value £5m

Client Winchester City Council

ArchitecturePLB was selected following an invited competition, to design and deliver this new residential development for Winchester City Council. The development, which sits within the Hyde conservation area and a dense urban neighbourhood, required a sensitive response to the surrounding Victorian properties.

The scheme provides 27 homes for local people looking to downsize or start on the property ladder. ArchitecturePLB undertook multiple consultations with residents and prospective users, in order to supplement the briefing process. Good accessibility, car parking, plentiful storage, excellent day-lighting and balconies are provided to compensate for the move from larger family units to City apartment living.
