This significant site near Cambridge Station, bounded by large industrial or commercial use buildings to the north/east and housing to the west, has been identified for housing in Cambridge City Council’s Station Road Action Plan.
The public realm has been designed to merge harmoniously with the proposed masterplan for the wider area. A large grassed quadrangle facing the station will ultimately allow cyclists and pedestrians to access the station directly across the site. Tree lined streets and sensitively planted parking mews provide safe walkable streets that are well overlooked by adjoining residences.
The generous amenity of large balcony space designed into every flat is further complimented by a formal communal garden at the centre of the scheme. A striking colonnade of geldistsia trees south of the main building elevation provide light summer shading (thus reducing solar gain) to the flats whist allowing views out into the garden.
