CAD were commissioned as residential architects by St Marys Homes to design a block of apartments on a small site in the middle of Liskeard. The building site is very constrained with existing buildings on all sides and a narrow road access.
The setting demanded a building of vernacular form using locally distinctive materials. In order to deliver the required number of dwellings, the height of the building was critical to achieve the right number of storeys. This presented a planning challenge and the 3D graphics were a part of the package of information and analysis used to convince the Local Authority.
The apartments were built out and sold well.
