Upton Sites F&G

A competition winning bid for a new development of 375 homes at Upton Sites F & G, an English Partnerships project on the outskirts of Northampton.  Working with HTA, Ramboll WhitbyBird Sustainability Consultants and Bellway Homes, we were responsible for the design of the High Street - a neighbourhood spine, with 90 homes, live work units and a nursery, all designed to COSH level 4.


We proposed houses with generous ground floor ceiling heights, stairs offset from the main plan and non-loadbearing ground floor frontages, to allow future flexibility of use.  The street elevations are a reinterpretation of the local vernacular, with simply detailed projecting bays.  At the rear the houses open onto to private green courtyards.
