Eldon Street, Chatham
Eldon Street sees the redevelopment of existing poor quality post war housing and provides 19 contemporary homes comprising of 8 houses and 11 apartments. Alternations in brick colour and texture help to create an animated street frontage and draw focus to the prominent gable elevation of the semi-detached houses. To create a sense of individuality and a varied streetscape the houses also feature different coloured front doors in varying shades of green. The corners of houses are emphasised through brick details that play on the idea of a change in direction by rotating 45 degrees whilst corners on the block of apartments are marked by projecting bay windows, giving the development a varied and active street frontage.
