The Colours, Hartlepool


The Colours is an area of over 125 terraced houses adjacent to Hartlepool Town Centre. The area has a rich heritage and real sense of community, however, the existence of these once popular streets has been under threat due to lack of investment and the ever growing new build market.

MCAU were appointed to restore these Victorian properties whilst bringing the internal layouts in line with modern family values. Properties will be remodelled to form 1, 2 & 3 bed dwellings including 2 into 1 lateral conversions to provide large rear gardens.

Selective demolition has taken place to allow the creation of a large landscaped garden square in the heart of the development to provide much needed community space and improve the well-being of the residents.
