The design on individual buildings and sections is being carried out by a variety of architects, and urban block 4.02 was designed as part of the process.
The block consists of a mix of houses and apartment buildings with a total of approximately thirty units, designed to reflect the local vernacular Dorset style.
The development is designed along traditional urbanisitic principles, forming communities of streets, squares, and open space; and a village centre creates a focal point for the new settlement.
The impetus is to strengthen the retail offering within the town centre as a countervailing strategy to the current trend of ‘edge-of-town’ retailing that is dependent on ‘cheap’ energy.
At present the town centre has no mid-sized food shop, something that is seen as key to the future of market towns such as Malton.
The new road makes a picturesque transition from the city centre towards the famed west-end of the Cathedral, bringing the visitor in from the secular to the sacred world.
A current project that is part of the redevelopment of Malton’s Livestock Market. The Kings Head is one of Malton’s old inns, and the yard behind is currently dotted with some very poor quality and unwelcoming buildings.
The proposed development consists of removing the poor quality buildings and replacing them with a properly articulated and attractive urban enclosure.
The development is limited to in scope to twenty-one hoses arranged in a picturesque, village-like pattern familiar to North Yorkshire. This includes roads with green verges, framed views to the open countryside beyond, and material patterns of stone and pantile.
The design of new gate piers at Wentworth Woodhouse is in the ‘artisan Mannerist’ baroque style of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Its main idea is that of a squared central element (the metal gates) flanked and supported by lower arched elements and oversized scrolls.
The rusticated piers are attenuated ionic pedestals that rely on the other elements both for visual support and cohesion.
The model presented a vision of a more environmentally friendly, healthier, and less car dependent urban design, which would also enhance a sense of community amongst its residents and update historical forms to reflect contemporary living.
It was drawn as a three-dimensional model and certain views were chosen for hand-drawn rendering. The view shows the whole of Lincolns Inn without the screen of existing trees and buildings to show its layout and configuration.
