We have submitted a detailed planning application, on behalf of our client the TLC Group, for the redevelopment of the old Milton Road School site in Cambridge. This sensitive site is located at a transitional point in the urban fabric - between the city centre and the surrounding, predominantly residential, areas.
The Aparthotel – provides much needed accommodation to cater for the distinctive Cambridge economy – reliant on visiting researchers and academics who require a City centre location for extended periods along with the ability to self-cater – a form of accommodation not provided by a traditional hotel.
Our proposal creates an improved public realm around this important junction. A ‘pavilion’ marks the entrance to the Aparthotel and acts as a focal element in response to local City design guidance. The aspect to Gilbert Road has been developed to be both articulate and of an appropriate scale.The focus for the scheme is a court space – sized to reflect a collegiate court and provides a valuable amenity to residents.
