Latest homes win planning for north-west Cambridge extension

  • Comment

A 70-home development by Cottrell and Vermeulen, Sarah Wigglesworth Architects, and AOC that will form part of the huge north west Cambridge extension has been approved

The mix of key-worker and open-market homes, designed collaboratively by the practices, include five-storey buildings leading from the development’s new local centre of Eddington, down to lower-density family housing in a new area named Ridgeway Village.

The extension has outline approval for 3,000 new homes, 2,000 student-accommodation units, a nuew urban centre, and 100,000m2 of research space on 150ha of University of Cambridge-owned farmland.

North West Cambridge Development project director Roger Taylor said the just-approved element of the plans were ‘characterful and responsive’ to their location.

‘They demonstrate how the masterplan ideals of quality architecture and vibrant street life will be implemented as future residents move from the local centre into the more residential neighbourhoods within the site,’ he said.

In addition to Cottrell and Vermeulen, Wigglesworth, and AOC, the wider scheme’s roster of architects includes: Wilkinson Eyre, Mole Architects, Stanton Williams, Mecanoo, RH Partnership, Marks Barfield, MUMA, Maccreanor Lavington, Witherford Watson Mann, Alison Brooks, Aecom, and Townshends.
