Napier Street

Conversion of unused 1980s commercial units into 14 apartments within a compact site in the centre of Cambridge. The scheme is a car-free development with extra cycle storage provision. The appearance of the buildings was transformed by recladding the existing structure in a new external skin of brickwork and high performance glazing. 


The development is centred around shared public amenity spaces which create the feel of an internal street. The interior spaces of the apartments are bright and sunny with large windows which reflect daylight through light wells into repurposed basement spaces. The existing street frontage was rebuilt to reinstate the coherence and character of the street.
