Valkyrie Road

The homeless charity HARP appointed SKARCHITECTS LTD to look at achieving the best value outcome for the release of their now redundant homeless shelter in Valkyrie Road, whilst also reflecting the market aspiration and need for good high quality housing in this part of Westcliff.

The approach taken was to re-stitch the traditional terrace of this part of Westcliff with a strong gable frontage to the street and small amounts of decoration to animate and provide interest within this regenerating location. The proposals are to improve connectivity and linkages within the centre of Westcliff, placing emphasis on the pedestrian and public transport.
