The Mill Hill Close residential project consists of 14 one and two bedroom flats within three adjoining blocks. It is set towards the southern end of the Mill Hill Close Conservation Area, which is formed of 33 properties, designed in the Arts & Crafts style, set around formally landscaped gardens. The new development was carefully designed and detailed to complement the existing buildings, whilst incorporating a slightly more contemporary feel. Steep pitched roofs, gables, traditional eave and verge detailing, decorative brickwork and locally sourced high-quality facing bricks and plain clay tiles all contribute to the character of the scheme. All flats are dual aspect with excellent natural lighting. The orientation takes advantage of morning and evening sunlight, avoiding excessive heat gain from the south. High levels of insulation, efficient boilers, recycling facilities, low water usage, low energy lighting and limited water run-off, all contribute to the high level of sustainability in the building.
