Chocolate Works – new build Phase 1

Developer/builder: David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East
Architect: Adam Cornish, Studio Partington, London

This is the first phase of an estate of 300 new homes on part of the former Terry’s Chocolate Factory site.  The layout is essentially urban in character, relatively dense and arranged around a formal street pattern reminiscent of the elegance and simplicity of the squares and avenues of Georgian London – but entirely contemporary in character.   There are no less than 7 different types of home – from studio apartments to 5 bedroom houses – all integrated into a regular architectural whole.  The arrangement of landscaping, streets and parking courts is devised to calm moving traffic and ensure that parked cars do not dominate the site.

This is an altogether original design, intelligently laid-out, beautifully detailed and meticulously built.  The developers, designers and builders are to congratulated on a remarkable achievement.
