Crowther Associates Architects recently completed and handed over the Montpelier Place project which has regenerated the previously derelict Montpelier Baptist Church site in the Montpelier and Clifton Hill Conservation area.
The scheme involved demolition of the existing 1960’s church, and in its place a new residential development has now been constructed which consisting of; 5 town houses, 19 apartments and a D1 commercial unit, all arranged in 3 distinct blocks. Each part of development has responded to the surrounding conservation areas, building typology and the tight urban grain of this city centre site.
The main element of the build is the eastern block which contains 14 high specification apartments over a D1 commercial unit on the ground floor. The central element of the scheme is formed of 5 town houses each with a roof terrace and extensive sea views. The brick and stone west block forms the affordable element of the scheme providing 5 apartments one of which constructed for wheelchair users.
