Our proposals for a new cluster of sustainable houses on Queen Edith Way provide five large dwellings on a brown-field site in a leafy suburban setting in the south of Cambridge. Dwellings are set back from the street and are sized to create a sensitive frontage in-keeping with the suburban context.
The arrangement of each house has been carefully considered to avoid all existing mature trees and minimise impact on the neighbouring properties. The staggered arrangement forms an in informal and well defined set of shared spaces. Asymmetrical gables facing the street, provide a strong and familiar motif, and minimise the scale of the buildings towards the perimeter of the site.
