What We Do – Some of Our Projects
The Wintles is our prototype eco-neighbourhood of 40 eco-houses, allotments, orchard and woodland. We bought the land to save it from a run-of-the-mill ‘anywhere’ estate on the edge of the historic hill town of Bishops Castle in Shropshire. More.
Oakley Orchards in Essex is designed to be a neighbourhood of 51 houses built to passive house standards where people can choose a serviced plot and configure their high spec home as a custom build. The neighbourhood includes a shared greens, a herb garden, new Village Hall, Doctors Surgery and Village Shop. More.
Higher Newham Farm was a proposition to open up 90 acres for the benefit of the people of Truro, to create an education based working farm and sustainable exemplar village of 150 houses. More.
Bells Court was our first development of five houses set around a shared courtyard and linked to each other with garden walls and walkways. All this on a site that would probably have taken five traditional detached units with integral garages. People must have thought we were crazy. More.
The Home of 2030 Open Ideas Competition run by Homes England and the RIBA was looking for innovate solutions to the housing problem. More
St. Mellion is a golf course in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Permission for 320 houses was only given to us to build here because of our unique ‘sense of place’. More.
Glendevon was designed as a new village as part of a major regeneration scheme at Winchburgh, 18 miles west of Edinburgh. A potential first for Scotland as a new settlement which combined energy-efficient houses with an attractive place to live. More.
Following on from the Dartington Future Homes Conference we worked with the Dartington Hall Trust to design 41 houses for a site on the edge of the heritage Dartington Estate. More.
Tattenhoe Park in Milton Keynes. This one was to be something that stood out in a town that is unashamedly designed for the car. We had high hopes that in awarding us this site, the Corporation was signalling a new direction. More.
