Looks really nice. Nicely textured and sensible massing.
Agreed, could almost be a nice little development down in London..

Looking at their portfolio, this could be quite promising:

Most of their developments are high quality and based in London, some developments are similar in style to this actually.
The new build scheme has been APPROVED

A few amendments to the listed Dagfa house are currently being made which should be decided in the next week or so.
Really nice exterior, bold shapes and big windows. Should be nice inside too. I really want to see more flats like this built in town, affordable homes for people on lower incomes that aren't shabby. Would be a real boost to see some nice flats being built for families and workers rather than just students!
