The Stagecoach Bus Depot site extends 1.029 acres and is located within the central area of Chester. The site is strategically positioned to the north of the Roman City Walls and to the south of Chester University. The land is linear linking to two pubic frontages at Liverpool and Victoria Road.
The development proposal is on ground plus four levels. The contiguous form is punctuated with cross fingers, which define private amenity spaces at ground level. The main foyer entrance is from Liverpool road, linking to a tree lined promenade to the south which connects to the remaining 4 entrance cores. One additional entrance is provided at Victoria Road.
The scheme offers mainly 5/6-bed cluster accommodation with studios located close to cores or on the upper floor level. The clusters are designed similar to apartments with party walls allowing for future adaptability. The facades are mainly 2 tomes of brickwork with metal panels and channels. The upper level is curtain walling with spandrel panels providing strong definition to the tops and emphasises the location of the studios.
