Martello Road
New visions
for historic features

The brief

To breathe new life into the luxurious stretch that is Martello Road by building a contemporary and premium selection of flats

The result

Elegant, contemporary design

Overlooking the cliff top sat a property coming to the end of it's design and developed lifecycle. It was understood that an increase in efficient use of space could be utilised in a beautiful location such as this.

Fortitudo’s challenge here was to completely transform a historic property into a contemporary space for the ever growing population of Poole, yet remain sympathetic to the area itself.

Project Value: £17.5 million

Approved: August 2016

The consideration to Martello Road and it's current residents was our focus. Working intelligently to design a property that would be elegant and efficient with it's inside and outside space was of great importance to avoid parking increases and loss of light to neighbouring properties.

Planning permission carefully considered all views and aspects of the surrounding area and it's residents and over came each issue as it arose. Planning has now been accepted to transform this property into new and contemporary residential apartments.
