MASTERPLAN - BERKSHIRE
We have been working with a developer to produce a masterplan for a site on the edge of Maidenhead in Berkshire. The current proposal contains around two hundred houses, flats and a care home.
Our proposal divides the site into two areas separated by an existing lane. One has a traditional village green at its centre, whilst the other has a small square.
The street character aims to follow that of nearby Bray, whilst at the same time accommodating modern vehicle movements and parking requirements. Front gardens are rarely more than a narrow planting strip in order to enhance street enclosure.
The houses look to the local vernacular found in villages such as Cookham and Hurley. A range of traditional materials and building forms helps to generate variety.
