Forming part of the new Oakgrove Village community, this phase of the development features bespoke ...
The development features the conversion of the Grade II listed former Nicholson and Co. factory that dates from the beginning of the 20th century. Two new apartment buildings sit on land to the rear, designed to complement the Listed building and also sit comfortably with the existing housing further along the road. 58 new apartments are created overall.
The façade, with its decorative Dutch Gables and elaborate detailing, conceals a simple north-lit roof, both of which had survived in relatively good condition. The conversion inserts two new courtyards into the main space, providing entrances to the apartments.
Saunders were appointed to develop the planning approved scheme through the construction phase.
