Shacklady Road, Kirkby, Liverpool for Plus Dane
Brock Carmichael is working with Plus Dane and Knowsley Borough Council on the development of 43 new homes, with a mix of family housing, 8 one bedroom apartments and 6 two bedroom bungalows. The development brings an unused urban brownfield site back into use which has attracted anti-social behaviour.
It will provide new high quality homes with frontages that give a stronger sense of community, urban cohesion and a better sense of place, with improved connections to Northwood Forrest Hills and its fishing lake.
Detailing references existing housing there but interprets this in a more contemporary manner, with simple detail and a palette of good quality materials leading to a complementary but strong sense of individual character to the new homes.
Working with main contractors Galliford Try, work began on site in January and is expected to finish in September 2019.
