We have considerable experience in developing masterplans of differing types. In historic settings, we worked at Princesshay in Exeter where we developed a series of mixed use buildings and a new public square adjacent to the cathedral.
In Lincoln, we developed a masterplan for the Flaxengate cultural quarter, which included a new archaeological museum (The Collection, which we designed and delivered), educational buildings and residential infill.
In Beverley, we produced an extension to the city centre that included retail/leisure, educational buildings and 300 new homes.
Recently, we have led two large residential-led mixed-use developments in London. At Clarendon in Wood Green we were successful in a limited competition to re-design an existing masterplan to improve the mix of uses, quality of amenity spaces, public realm and residential densities providing upwards of 1500 new homes. This was achieved through very careful planning of L-shaped blocks surrounding intimate courtyards and public squares.
In Woolwich we have submitted planning for a mixed used development which delivers an uplift of new housing on a previous masterplan and also includes new retail, leisure and nursery facilities.
We understand the process of coordinating the demands of well-serviced, commercial uses and/or parking podiums with residential homes and gardens/amenity spaces situated above, whilst carefully integrating the movement of cars and people.
