Completed in 2014, this £6 million flagship development of 34 two bedroom luxury apartments for independent living with a central community facility sits within a conservation area and is clad in stone to sit comfortably with its surroundings. The properties fulfil Durham County Council’s requirements for affordable housing within the area by providing apartments at affordable rent levels with 13 for sale.
The brief of our client, Derwentside Home, was to create high quality, durable interiors with the feel of a boutique hotel. With extensive experience in the hospitality sector, Ward Robinson were a perfect choice to fulfil these exacting requirements.
Working in harmony with the contemporary rustic theme of the architecture, a calm and welcoming environment was created with a warm and neutral colour palette. Bold use of colour in communal areas adds interest and vibrancy with large chandeliers adding a sense of drama to the community area.
