Kingsmead Road, High Wycombe

Cometa is a distinctive, contemporary response to a small, suburban infill site. The 12 homes have strong architectural quality, exploit views well and are light and airy. The scheme makes a positive contribution to the local character and to the street scene.

The potential of the surrounding landscape has been fully exploited to provide high-quality homes enjoying views and sunlight. All the flats are dual aspect and enjoy balconies, roof terraces or patios, in addition to an attractive terraced communal garden.

With its richly articulated facades with large windows and balconies, and dramatic monopitch roofs, Cometa is a surprising addition to a suburban neighbourhood.
