St Andrews Crescent

St Andrews Crescent
The refurbishment of two linked 1970 built housing blocks of 24 units each for Southside Housing Association. Approximately one-third of the units are privately owned with the remainder being socially rented accommodation. The exterior elevations have been given a more homogenous look to replace the “bands” effect horizontally, and the Mansard roof has been broken up to create a visually improved aesthetic more sympathetic to the original sixties-style of architecture. Internally, three of the flats were extended into the roof space with the potential to extend the remainder in the future.

These created four-bedroom flats that are beneficial to the housing association. All flats had gas central heating installed to replace electric storage heaters. The deck access areas had a new, slip resistant and durable screeded floor installed and heavy duty cross corridor doors for fire and smoke separation. The deck access areas and the balconies were enclosed w ith a ventilated glazing system, which enables them to be enclosed against the weather but opened up as necessary, particularly useful in terms of the individual balconies to each flat.
