Housing in Burneside Village


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.

Burton Stone Lane progress


The cranked steel frame at our Burton Stone Lane project in York is now installed.  This week and next the slim profile Petersen bricks will be built too, with the copper roof being finished in January and project completion in the summer of next year.  For more information on the project click here.
