Live/Work provides dedicated work space co-located with where people choose to live. They cover a range of configurations for people who want to place different emphasis on their workplace and who desire a better choice of where and how to live. In reaction to this Erimus Housing asked us to design 20 Live Work units to sit alongside the Boho1 Digital City development in Middlesbrough.
The development aims to take a contemporary approach towards building shape and massing, use of materials, fenestration and internal spatial arrangements which will set it aside from most volume house developments and reflects the dual use inside. The development consists of 1 and 2 bed apartments over 3 and 4 storey heights. Common staircase enclosures, larger scale glazing elements over double spaces, roof terraces and balconies will contribute to defining and expressing the design intentions described above.
