Our main priority is helping clients make great architecture that serves their needs and responds in a vital way to its context and cultural surroundings. In order to do this and to further the studios own knowledge base we invest in a wide programme of research which enables us to be inventive and to find new and sometimes unexpected solutions to the problems that we are posed.
We work in collaboration with like-minded consultants in order to further our thinking and skill level and since our inception, we have always looked to develope concepts grounded by good research that have a light touch on the planet, are low in carbon and energy-use. We look to our research to help us and our clients mitigate the impact of climate change.
AR Infill is an example of how WR-AP are assisting their clients with maximising the value of their property assets. Reinventing a disused, land locked, small industrial unit site to provide a bespoke home targeted at the first time buyer market, AR infill explores what is possible with spaces that others deem undevelopable whilst at the same time offering something contextual to its surroundings.
Responding to the sites natural constraints of siting tight against three boundary lines, the new dwelling celebrates courtyard living whilst maximising natural light internally by the careful positioning of window openings and void areas. The subtle use of local vernacular materials such as brickwork and exposed concrete allows for the intervention to sit complementary within its surroundings
Designed as an infill dwelling, the home adheres to all national housing standards whilst also offering an intelligent response to both potential over-looking issues and the provision of ample private amenity space.
