This development of 5 zero carbon homes is located on one of the best plots in Hastings – just a stones throw from Hastings castle, with panoramic views to both the East, the West and the Castle. Perched high up between Hastings Old Town and the Town Centre, it sits in a residential setting within the Old Town Conservation Area.
The ambition of the client is to create a high quality and highly efficient terrace of homes for the 21st century, and to demonstrate that zero carbon dwellings can be commercially viable. ZEDfactory have worked up a design which both delivers in design quality and environmental performance, providing an opportunity to transform this derelict site into a historically important project for the city to coincide with the 950th-anniversary celebrations of 1066.
The design is of a staggered terrace of 5, running perpendicular to Castle Hill Rd, optimising the panoramic views from each home.
