Broadlaw Walk

Location Fareham, Hampshire
Client Portsmouth Housing Association
Completed 2004

This development on the site of a disused petrol station and poor quality parking area, houses 18 one and two bed apartments. Broadlaw Walk was the first key element in a vision to improve the area around Broadlaw Walk shopping centre. The massing and detailing reflect the diversity of the surrounding conditions, with the main aim being to create a strong sense of identity for the new building and every flat within. This feeling is reinforced by bright communal hallways designed to feel like 'streets' that lead to easily recognizable front doors.

This award winning project is the outcome of an intense and rewarding process of experimentation by a committed client and design team. Winner of the Best New Housing Scheme of the Year (The Housing Excellence Awards 2005).
