Knowle Hill, Senior Living development of 5 units, in wooded site, Surrey.

 This beautiful sloping site in Virginia Water is surrounded on three sides by tall self-seeded Sweet Chestnut trees.

We proposed a cluster of 2 bedroom high quality apartments, informally arranged around a central, paved mews. The stepped massing of the proposal responds directly to the site and each dwelling has views of the trees beyond. Each apartment is expressed as an individual form, with its own identity.

Designed for senior living, the development proposes a  housing typology currently lacking in the local area. The landscape strategy includes new semi mature trees, wild flower planting and woodland paths. 

Mike Zakiewicz, Client; “We chose Studioshaw because you provide a very personal service and were responsive to our particular needs. The main strength is, apart from your abilities as an architect, we felt we could always get through to you. You brought advice and expertise to our project.”
