Overview of Coach House, Mews, Ware
The site was situated in a prominent and sensitive location in the historic town of Ware, running from the rear of the High Street down to a frontage on the River Lea.
Located within a Conservation Area the site was also designated as an Area of Archaeological Significance. The development incorporated a strong linear footprint reflecting the historical layout of the former 'burgage' plots. It was constructed using traditional methods and designed to reflect the myriad of styles and materials found in the local 'street scenes'.
The design also had to accommodate various archaeological discoveries, particularly the Saxon remains that were left intact on site.
The final development by City & Country comprised of 15 new homes, all with their own unique design and style. These included Mews, Georgian, and Victorian. It won various awards including the Gold Award for 'Best Development' from the WhatHouse? Awards, and a commendation from the Ware Society for its design and construction.
