Meroe court provides affordable accommodation for 14 units of mixed occupancy on a former waste transfer site:- six 1-bed flats, 7 family maisonettes & 1 wheelchair user apartment. The building responds to the existing street architecture in an interpretive rather than a confrontational manner, whilst introducing new materials which give the elevations their own distinct vocabulary.
The crescent form makes maximum use of the site, whilst still addressing the street. All entrances lobbies open onto the courtyard and curved balconies and planters at second floor level provide private spaces which overlook the courtyard. The scheme anticipates that the courtyard acts as communal space and an impromptu meeting place for residents, protected from the street by planting & wrought iron railings. All living rooms open onto large gardens or balconies to the rear and provide surveillance over a dedicated children's play area.
