Rural Community Masterplan, Essex

Sustainable By Design

Client: Private Developer

sustainableBYdesign is working with local suppliers and developers applying sustainable design criteria, including orientation for Passivhaus design and solar roofs, to a mixed use masterplan with homes sensitively grouped in winding homezones and clustered courtyards. The design features a central open space, local play areas and a health centre/ community hub. A varied mix of affordable house types, earmarked for local people and adaptable for live/work, will be built in each phase to an overall density of up to 50 units per hectare.
