Designed by Whittam Cox Architects, Sackville Road is an intergenerational urban village on a 9-acre site which will provide 564 apartments for rent to suit all ages, lifestyles, and requirements.
Residents in the six apartment buildings will benefit from communal lounges, roof spaces and open terraces, private dining areas, cafes, shops, 24/7 gyms, and 50,000sqft of office and co-working space.
Deanestor will manufacture and install 572 bespoke kitchens for the studios and one, two and three-bed apartments and offices, and 916 fitted wardrobes, all to Moda’s high specification interior design.
William Tonkinson, Managing Director of Deanestor, said: “We are delighted to have secured our second and largest contract for Moda to date. Our sister company Offsite Solutions is providing the bathroom pods for this development – which means that between both businesses, we have been awarded more than £8m of contracts for Sackville Road.”
Manufactured in the UK, the bespoke modern kitchens will be L- or U-shaped with some linear configurations. The base cabinets and three-drawer units will have a dark grey horizontal woodgrain finish with wall cabinets in a lighter matt colour and contrasting white marbled quartz worktops and splashbacks.
The units have a handle-less design for a sleek and contemporary appearance, and there will be LED lighting under the wall cabinets. Some of the kitchens will have breakfast bars.
High quality integrated appliances include combi or dual fan oven, microwave, dishwasher, tall fridge freezer, extractor, four-ring induction hob, dishwasher, and washer/dryer fitted in a specially designed utility cabinet.
The built-in floor-to-ceiling wardrobes will be manufactured in three sizes and two or three-door configurations with double hanging rails, full-height internal mirror, storage spaces, deep red back panel, and shelving. The doors will have a contemporary integrated handle design.
Construction on the site of a disused industrial park is now underway and scheduled for completion in 2024. The masterplan also includes 260 community care homes, as well as a public square, landscaped pathways, and extensive public realm and gardens.
