The proposed scheme has been designed to be in keeping with the local architectural forms and style. The house types and layout for the proposal have been designed to minimise the impact of the housing to the surrounding context.

The overall intent is create a street scene for the entrance to tremadog and tie the two houses adjacent to the East and West of the site together. The scheme will aim to integrate usable public space at the rear of the site for the new occupants and the local residents of Tremadog.

The proposal is for a 100% affordable housing scheme with integrated public space. The housing mix will comprise of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses.

All of the house types for the scheme have been designed as chalet style bungalows to match the form of the neighbouring houses to the East and West of the site and create a consistent street scene.

The form of the housing minimises the impact on the surrounding context and the houses have been generously spaced to allow views through to the back of the site.

All of the house types for the scheme have been designed as chalet syle bungalows with sleeping accomodation in the roof.

The form is of single storey with strong verticle bays protruding from the building envelope. These bays create usable living space in the roof line of the properties and will be clad in the same stone used on the local buildings.

The chimneys and canopy upstands will also be clad in this same stone and will create a relationship between the existing stone wall at the front of the site and the surrounding context.

The roofs will incorporate the local slate and the main cladding material will be timber to create a relationship between the housing and the woodland behind.

The layout creates open plan living that opens up to the gardens behind.
