This new build mixed use scheme on a new housing development in Chinley, High Peak , combines light industrial and studio units on the ground floor with a dwelling above. The whole scheme will meet high environmental standards with the ground floor units designed to meet the AECB standard of 40KWh/m² annum for heating and the dwelling designed to meet the Passivhaus standard of 15KWh/m² annum.
The built form reflects the previous industrial use of the site, referencing the simple north light roof forms that were typical of industrial buildings. The ground floor is faced in a local coursed gritstone whilst the first floor has a render finish that closely matches the colour of the stone.
The scheme obtained planning approval in April 2020 and is due to start on site in 2021.
