Masterplan

The proposal reinforces existing connections by maintaining both vehicular and pedestrian access links and respects surrounding buildings by maintaining large seperation distances and boundary treatments. Two pedestrian-only links are provided, one to the north and one to the south of the development which help to integrate the scheme within the local context.

Massing model from above

The scheme includes various segments of green space which permeate through the design both formally and informally. These spaces add visual interest and promote walking and cycling. Attractive routes out of the site onto Wergs Road encourages people to utilise the existing public transport infrastructure and reduces the dependency of cars.

Different character areas are defined by their relationship to the local surroundings and natural landscaping

The scheme creates local distinctiveness with the use of design details inspired by both the local vernacular and the historical links to the original 'Woodthorne' building that stood on the site (demolished in 1978). This is particularly emphasised in the design of the apartment block.

Existing Planting Plan

The soft landscaping design strategy for the scheme is focused on respecting and incorporating the natural 'green' features on the site. This includes the retention of as many existing trees as possible and ensuring that dwellings are positioned so that existing trees avoid over shadowing or structural damage. Another key landscaping strategy was to utilise this in the formation of a landmark site entrance.

The hard landscaping strategy for the scheme is to reinforce the character areas, defined by the materiality, massing and soft landscaping. Different surface treatments are used, along with an organic road layout, shared surfaces including the loss of footpaths and raised kerbs, raised tables and informal connections contribute to creating a distinctive character for the development and help to reduce vehicle speeds, indicating they are now in a 'homezone' area.
