The Swan, Clapham

Project Brief

Located in the village settlement of Clapham which is approximately three miles north of the centre of Bedford, this site was occupied by a public house which was no longer commercially viable and had been closed for five years. Residential development was considered the most appropriate re-use within this predominately residential area.

Project Details

The development consists of eleven dwellings in the form of 2, 3 and 4 bed semi-detached houses.  This delivers 23 dwellings per hectare which sits comfortably in the existing context of the density sought by the Local Authority.  All the homes are either 2 or 2.5 storeys in height with pitched roofs, in keeping with the local vernacular.  

Each house has been designed to meet the requirements of the Building Regulations Part M to ensure that the development accommodates the needs of all users, including those with disabilities.

The scheme is not only sustainable in planning terms by providing housing and amenities within an area where existing facilities support new development, but also provides new houses that are energy efficient and promote resource conservation.
