A beautiful collection of 2,3,4 and 5 bedroom homes. Built within a conservation area, we worked closely with planners and the conservation officer in order to utilise attractive, yet cost effective materials. Ground conditions were testing due to its proximity to flood plains and the high water table. This meant the units required piled foundations and a pumping station for the foul drainage. The site achieved the level 3 Code for Sustainable Homes as well as a ‘Secure by Design’ award, and was an LABC Awards 2016 Best New Housing Development finalist.
