Arthur Pope House


Re-Format’s scheme, won through competition, proposed the construction of 57 new dwellings, comprising of 51 apartments and 6 family houses. These have been built to meet the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and will result in low utility bills for the occupiers. The layout creates a series of new pedestrian routes that reintegrate the site into its local context and provides a generous landscaped public open space. At public consultation events the scheme received unanimous approval from the attendees.

The scheme is a fundamental component of the Somerstown & North Southsea Area Action Plan. The vision for the plan has been the creation of a sustainable urban community. It will improve quality of life, foster local pride and act as a springboard for social and economic regeneration.

“Portsmouth City Council have used Reformat on several building projects over the past few years, they have provided an excellent service, prompt, well informed and efficient.

We are employing them on two current projects and would have no hesitation in recommending them to other public and private clients.”
