This scheme takes the form of two blocks of apartments. The larger block fills a gap between buildings of disparate style with the smaller block arranged at right angles on a side street.

The design takes advantage of a set back in the line of the cliff face to form a private space at the rear of the larger block. Detailed demonstration of environmental quality in this space led to the granting of permission for rear facing units, thus allowing the larger block to be planned with a double aspect.
