The Closes - Redcar

The Closes area of Redcar was redeveloped by the Council with their development Partners to provide a mix of new, private and social residential housing. As part of this, SPA were appointed as Architects for the development of Elderly persons bungalows and apartments.

The design for the development had been carried out by another architect under a competition however working in partnership with Keepmoat Regen, our role was to develop the elderly persons accommodation in greater detail to closely align with the Coast and Country’s ( Now Beyond Housing) requirements and enable construction of the buildings. The development comprised 18 bungalows located close to 44 apartments, off Oxendale Road in Redcar. The bungalows were re-designed to ensure they were more appropriate for the user group but retaining the dramatic imagery created by the initial design.
