On a sloping hillside site this development was conceived as a modern hill-town arranged around a new public parkland. Geometric planning and contemporary architecture creates an intelligent, distinctive sense-of-place.
The project has won awards from the RIBA and CABE. It has also featured extensively in Building for Life’s best practice Case Studies. Contemporary architecture blended with traditional materials has helped ensure the development has remained as popular now as when it was first built.
