Totsome Cottages comprises 2 affordable rent dwellings for Winchester City Council; 1no. 3 bed 5 person house and 1no. 2 bed 4 person house.
The proposal forms an extension of an existing street scene and has been designed to respectfully reflect the surrounding context. The proposal complements the Knowle vernacular by use of local building technique and materials.
Render clads the first floor gable end and dormer whilst the rest of the exterior walls are clad in red brick. A brick soldier course wraps around the building creating a divide between ground floor and first floor. Catslide roofs with pitched fronts are typical to Dean Villas and Totsome Cottages, and this feature further ties the proposal nicely to the location.
