Plans approved for sensitive Cambridge site

Freeland Rees Roberts has welcomed the planners’ decision to approve the final design for the conversion of numbers 18-19 Regent’s Terrace into apartments.

The location of the building, midway along Regent’s Terrace and overlooking Parker’s Piece, always meant that it would be the focus of considerable interest when plans to convert it were announced. Freeland Rees Roberts prepared two designs for consideration, one contemporary, one traditional, and is especially pleased that the design favoured by their client is the design now approved by the planners.

The brief from the developer was to design a traditional-looking façade and 11apartments behind, these last to a high, 21st-century specification. The apartments will offer either one or two bedrooms.

Sarah Morrison of Freeland Rees Roberts is very pleased with the result: ’Our objective was to design a graceful exterior pleasing to the eye, and apartments that provide attractive and stylish interiors for occupants, incorporating building systems that support sustainability. We are delighted that the planners have understood and approved what we wish to achieve.’

Work is due to begin on the site in late Summer 2012, and the apartments should be ready for occupation in late Spring 2013.
