Mix-Use High Street Scheme, Dorking, UK
This development for Intercounty Properties is located centrally on the High Street, Dorking. The scheme comprises of one A1 Unit, two A3 Units over ground and first floors and four, two bedroom flats on the second floor. The site is restricted on three boundaries as we have a retail unit at each end of the site and on the rear boundary are located a number of townhouses. The only access to the development comes from the frontage on the High Street.
Visually the plot has been broken down into contrasting buildings to maintain the rhythm and typical frontage size seen along the High Street. The first building has an architectural style the complements the scale and language common to the area. The second building provides a modern statement.
This part of the building is sympathetic to the scale of the High Street. The main façade is set back from the footpath, providing a terrace area to the front with an extensive box window at first floor level. This development has received planning and is due on site shortly.
