PCKO GOES DOWN TO THE RIVERSIDE
PCKO Architects has submitted this mixed-use scheme in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, for planning. London-based PCKO and landscape designer Allen Pyke won a Cambridge County Council competition for the brownfield site along the River Nene. The Taylor Woodrow development - part of a masterplan drawn up by Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design - will include more than 300 homes, 200 of which will be in three five-storey blocks at the water's edge. Smaller dwellings will be built behind the waterfront homes. PCKO senior associate Gordon Evans said: 'We are sweeping away defunct industrial usage along the river and introducing a pedestrian footway leading to a new square and 'landmark' boat house [by landscape architect Watkins: Dally].'
