The strong architectural character, inspired by brick housing of the Dutch school, is respected by retaining the shell and redeveloping the interior accommodation

The number of units was reduced from 138 to a more comfortable 106. Apartments have been refitted, access decks enclosed, building fabric upgraded and lifts installed

A section of the development is reserved for sheltered accommodation; half of these 56 units are wheelchair accessible

A community centre, offices for the Cluid Housing Association, shops and workshops are incorporated
