Design Brief

The applicant site had granted the proposed scheme in 2009. The proposed scheme is 2 storey one-bedroom unit and the height of the proposed building is not beyond the front retail unit. Thus, the proposal is hidden from the street level to minimise overlook and outlook. Although this proposal attempt to minimise impact to neighbour properties, the proposal is already produced over-development into the applicant site due to its narrow condition sandwiched by  neighbour properties. Moreover, Young-In architect articulates that providing the one-bedroom unit in the narrow and besieged condition is not worth enough for living quality and market value.

2007 Granted development scheme

The design team argues that the proposal could have one more bedroom unit via elevating a more floor, while it has risk on the planning application. Therefore, this design report proposes a new design scheme with the additional floor in order to provide two-bedroom unit. Moreover, the design scheme aims to enhance the living quality in restricted surrounding condition in terms of noise, daylight and view.
