Almshouses, Taunton

Commercial / Residential

A competition bid for a contemporary take on almshouses for a local trust.  The building aimed to provide several residential units as well as office space on the ground floor. Key to the project was the provision of sufficient outdoor amenity space and views of nature for all occupants. The scheme focused on the use of a simple palette of good quality materials with careful brick detailing that referenced the surrounding historic buildings but didn’t juxtapose with other more contemporary neighbours.
