Arborfield Green – Parcel O1

Near Wokingham, Berkshire

The first residential phase of this 2,000 home settlement at the Arborfield Green (a former garrison) site is a stunning contemporary lakeside development comprising 113 dwellings in a landscaped setting.

The layout has been designed using ‘Garden Village principles’ and puts the lake back into the public realm and a ‘Village Green’ at the heart of the site. Large detached dwellings overlook open parkland (the SANG) along the eastern edge. The low to medium density layout cleverly maximizes the value of the sites natural assets – the mature trees and lake – offering a green outlook to the majority of homes.
