Here is our proposal for a flexible housing typology which can grow from a 1 bedroom house into a three bedroom house over time. The masterplan arrangement has been informed by the local vernacular (in the Lake District village of Burneside) as have the houses. Low dry stone walls create front gardens which open onto a shared landscape of allotment gardens and wilderness play - the houses are built using a repeatable CLT frame, and feature open hung staircases and pop-out bay windows which overlook the hills to the west.
The first hard copy edition of our Place Vision book for Meridian Water has just been published.
We’ve been working with Enfield Council to capture the core elements of Meridian Water, past, present and future. The Place Vision book is the master vision document for the project and will be accompanied by ten ‘Place Briefs’ for the various neighbourhoods. The Place briefs contain more detail on how the Place Vision is interpreted and delivered to create robust, sustainable, healthy and distinctive places for current and future Enfield communities.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve won the RIBA Journal’s first Future Town Centre Competition in Dover. Our work focused on four place making themes; Resilience, Connection, ‘Local ness’ and Greening. Exploring the re-purposing of existing buildings, consolidation and mixing of uses and the naturalisation of the Dour our proposal looks to a future experiential town centre where people live, work and learn.
The Future Town Centre programme will feature in the July 2019 issue of the RIBA Journal.
Thank you to all those who came to see our proposals for Little Haldens in the Gomm Valley at the weekend, where we are working with Mae and Kjellander Sjöberg architects. The exhibition showed the illustrative masterplan, an overview of the key features of the project and the ecology, energy and landscape strategies.
The plans will now be finalised and drawn together in an outline planning application for submission to Wycombe District Council in December.
