Duke Street

Located on the site of a former nightclub in the centre of Chelmsford, Claridge Architects have designed a mixed-use development of 84 apartments with 8,000 sqft of retail and office floor space at ground level.

A rational contemporary approach was developed in response to this tight urban site. Three urban blocks are located around a new public square at the heart of the site, providing high density urban housing whilst remaining sensitive to the historic context of Chelmsford City Centre. The contemporary design references the historic architecture of the surrounding area through careful use of materials, scale and proportion. The public square will also provide a new pedestrian link between Duke Street and Victoria Street.

Internally, the buildings have been designed to maximise the quality of the accommodation, making use of the location and orientation of the site to provide outstanding views, natural light and amenity spaces.

Construction work is due to start in late 2015.
