Sovereign Harbour Site 8
A residential development of eight villas plus a new public open space on an undeveloped 0.34 hectare site located at the head of the North Harbour at the
north eastern end of Sovereign Harbour within an area of mixed residential
development.Oneill Homer provided masterplanning and architectural services
to achieve planning consent for the scheme and provide a design brief for the development of the project.
The site was an ‘unfinished’ gap in the Harbour frontage with extensive views to the south west across the Harbour. Technical constraints included an adjacent pumping station and the established flood risk levels. The brief was for a residential development that would complete the Harbour edge and create a
new public open space.
The design strategy was based on eight paired villas using the change of level across the site to create private amenity space with elevated views across the Harbour and resolve the flood protection requirements.
