The focus of this project was to create attractive, modern and highly sustainable housing for the public rental sector, on an area of underutilised public space. The relationship with surrounding properties and with the existing trees required particularly careful consideration.

The scheme design centres on a pedestrian dominated ‘Homezone’, ensuring slow traffic speeds and providing good natural surveillance and a safe environment for residents.
An informal meeting space located at the end of the site access road acts as a focal point to the scheme, with defensible space being delineated by careful use of contrasting paving patterns.
