Victoria Road considers the use of a vacant side located on a prominent corner site within the heart of Wisbech. The overall aesthetic of the development is important and has been a major factor in the design and layout of the site. The massing of the surrounding context and sites topography has been a contributing factor to the overall appearance, form and scale. The roof heights of the development have been adjusted and altered to reduce the buildings overall mass and generate an attractive form and character to reflect more traditional housing along Victoria Road. Traditional detailing of parapets, low level plinth surround and solider coursing above all openings help balance the building against traditional detailing along Victoria Road. Some dwellings have also been provided with bay windows to break up the building facade and reflect bays within existing dwellings locally.
