An impressive new development of 48 one and two bedroom apartments in the picturesque fishing port of Whitby. Key to the brief was to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.

The roof design for this scheme was particularly complex and the architects design incorporated a number of unusable voids. The span and flexibility of icarus allowed our design to team to modify the design creating habitable spaces, increasing floor area. Changes were also made to the basement structure.

Inclement weather on this costal site did not hamper progress.

Factory precision and excellent technical knowledge resulted in excellent acoustic, Rw-60dB, and airtightness, average score 2, performance results.
