Villiers RoadEdit profile
Villiers Road Studios are a row of three timber clad, single occupancy cottages situated in the rear yard of an existing homeless hostel. The proposal is conceived as move-on accommodation as residents progress towards independent living. Each home is accessed through a courtyard overlooked by an open plan living/kitchen with full height glazing. Stairs lead up to a first floor bedroom under a spectacular vaulted roof with large windows overlooking the communal garden area. The brief developed with St Mungo’s was to create the opportunity for move-on accommodation within the environment of the existing hostel, creating independent dwellings in close proximity to the services and support of the hostel if required. The site at the rear of the yard offered the opportunity for development into three single occupancy studio houses.
