Canal Walk

Location Southampton, Hampshire
Client Southern Housing Group
Completed Planning 2010

This scheme is a highly innovative and contextual response to a complex urban site adjoining the 15th Century Old Town Wall. Canal Walk houses 14 flats over 5 floors and the design makes a virtue of the numerous constraints to determine a dynamic structure, including a 4m cantilever over the historic wall.

Working with a full set of consultants we developed an intricate, exciting, yet sensitive contribution to this important site.

A thorough urban design led approach gained unanimous support from the City Council.
