We are delighted to share that Corporation Street, our scheme for mhs homes, was pronounced the winner at the Kent Housing Group Excellence Awards in the “Excellence in Development” category! Situated in a prominent position between Medway Town Centre and the Riverside development, Corporation Street provides 89 contemporary apartments on a previously underutilised infill site. BPTW’s design approach for the scheme was inspired by the architectural style of surrounding buildings and the historic character of the town. The buildings seek to reinforce the street edge currently ill-defined along the main road. A tree lined boulevard created by setting back the development from the main road maintains a buffer zone aiding in reducing noise pollution and creating a haven for residents. Windows and balconies are set out in a tartan grid pattern whilst outset balconies feature on the corners of the building, adding visual interest to the building’s façade whilst affording residents views of prominent Medway Town Centre features including the City Wall, Cathedral and Castle. The scheme sets the benchmark for the wider regeneration of Corporation Street and Rochester and we look forward to continuing our work in the area.
