Rotherfield Crescent

This proposal creates a new community of 4 family houses around a varied landscape with communal outdoor eating area and facilities for storage and gardening. Friendly relations between the new development and existing neighbours are promoted with improvements to the access road and a selling point for home-grown produce. Pedestrian and vehicle access rights to existing properties are maintained with improved security.

The design concept provides a new central south-facing landscape space with varied levels, seating and play spaces. A communal building provides storage for bicycles, gardening equipment and a large south-facing bench. Consultation with the Council's housing and landscape teams has been influential in the design of central landscape space. The design was awarded First Prize in the RIBA New Homes for Neighbourhoods competition.
