Young Street Urban Apartments

Our scheme for seven apartments and a shop on the corner of Young Street and Sturton Street, in the central conservation area in Cambridge, is immediately adjacent to recently competed Anglia Ruskin University student accommodation.  The proposal steps up from two, to three, and finally four storeys. A gently sloping south-facing roof, equipped with PV cells and Sedum, is punctuated by recessed terraces and a chimney (redolent of those in the ARU building) demarcates the corner.  The building subtly references not only the surrounding Victorian architecture but also the architecture of its newest neighbour; modulating the change in scale from the two-storey terraced houses to the south to the four-storey ARU building.
