A Feasibility study for a mixed use residential-led masterplan in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland, three miles from the centre of Middlesbrough.

The site contained residual 1950's post war housing that was dilapidated and in need of major renovation. The proposals re-imagined the distribution of public space in and around the former residential areas, with the introduction of a mixed tenure,diverse typology offer to attract a new, younger resident.

Ground floor live work-spaces coupled with local amenities were proposed to activate the site,while prefabrication methods for the homes sought to reduce capital costs and bring down the cost of delivery and provide up to 50% affordable homes.
