Took a few pictures here today (sorry for the poor quality - taken on phone). Impressed by the size of the various developments round here.















Also, there's a lot of scaffolding up around the old Red House. Not sure what they're doing here.

Yeah, definitely. It's not so clear in the photos, but in person it was clearly two different sites.

There was a third site under development opposite the old Red House actually. You can see them hauling up a skip in the final picture. Appears to be this one. So much going on round there!

It was hard to tell behind all the scaffolding, but the exterior seemed to be complete. No idea about the progress of the interior though.

In my opinion there are some nice touches with a limited palette of materials. Good distinction between the clad and brick sections to break up the massing and address the streetscape.
Stone banding on the first floor a nice touch too, helps tie it together.

I know Coda are involved in the design of a lot of these projects and the client usually dictates what they want - is there a reason why balconies are often shunned?

Apartments would be so much more attractive to a much wider range of people if they had good private outdoor spaces.

Its often a practicality decision. Often balconies arent used much by residents if they arent big enough, they can make a facade look messy or look 'tacked on'. In many cases such as this one the building line is very tight to the back of pavement for efficiency, they would therefore be overhanging the pavement, something which needs 6m of clearance. Balconies often look and work better when they are intgrated into the buildng rather than added on, and in a lot of cases that isnt possible as it eats away too much of the useable floorspace.

With this one we kind of wanted to keep it clean and simple looking. Taking cues from the details of the chapel next door.

A lot of the time we try and include some form of outdoor amenity space, courtyard or garden. Sometimes though you are just too strapped for space.

That's a much more practical approach. Sometimes large balconies on some developments simply get used as outdoor storage areas and look a mess.

Walked through St. Vincent's on the way to town on Saturday and great to see the demolitions in the flesh. New and refurbished buildings really starting to emerge and be prominent in this area now! Great pics above but seeing it really allowed me to understand the scale and impact of the changes.
