Ashford Sustainable Development

New code 5 housing development

The brief was to develop the site with maximum efficiency, providing high density housing, but making best use of the topography of the site.

Consisting of 88 "eco" dwellings, arranged in 2 - 5 storey blocks, grouped around courtyards and community spaces, the overall development was conceived as a series of interlocking green spaces that enhanced the existing natural habitats on the site.

The proposals aim to create a calm, relaxing environment which encourages the appropriation of external spaces for community based activities. Each house is designed to maximise north light, incorporate a sun-space for passive heating and to be naturally ventilated. The proposal was commended by CABE and obtained outline planning approval on its first submisson.
