Waters Edge, Stourport on Severn

Barratts West Midlands

A canalside regeneration project including a mix of residential properties on a true brownfield site.

RPS provided detail design services for the project after Barratt West Midlands acquired the site. Our services included the replanning and refinement of the original scheme together with the production of full technical information.

The design achieves a cohesion of traditional and contemporary architecture, responding to the existing elements surrounding the site whilst creating a new public space around the canal basin. A variety of materials and inclusion of benches and raised planters define the public space around the basin which is now fully functional and includes moorings.

The site comprises a variety of accommodation including:

Considerately refurbished existing building converted to provide apartments.

Traditional two and three storey houses respectfully completing the urban fabric of historic Lichfield Street.

Five no. three and four storey contemporary apartment blocks enclosing the basin.

Contemporary three storey housing.
