Development concept for a mixed use scheme in Silverdale town centre. The site is an irregular shaped and sloping with three road frontages. The solution presents 'active' street frontages to the existing roads and creates a series of terraced squares defined by small retail and other commercial uses. Parking is situated in integral garages for the houses and undercroft for the commercial uses that takes advantage of the sloping site.
