Rosemount

13 new-build houses to meet HQI and Lifetime Home standards. Firebird Homes Ltd. enjoy an enviable reputation for providing excellent-quality affordable housing throughout Bradford. The latest addition to their portfolio is the redevelopment of Clifton Villas, Manningham. Set on the edge of Apsley Crescent Conservation area, this scheme presented a number of challenges; not least replacing ‘Rosemount’ the Victorian Gothic villa which once occupied the site.

Together with Indigo Planning Ltd, BBA set about a comprehensive interrogation of conservation area assessment and the built context. Our conclusion was that the more successful buildings here have a distinctly simple rationale that elevates them beyond the merely stylistic. It is these qualities we have used to guide the design: generosity of adaptable accommodation, simplicity in form and detailing and judiciousness in the articulation of key elements in the design.
