  • Comment

Alison Brooks Architects (ABA), Proctor Matthews and Pollard Thomas Edwards have been appointed to work on a major new housing quarter as part of the north-west Cambridge extension programme

The 400 new homes will include apartments, terraces, semi-detached and detached houses.

ABA and Pollard Thomas Edwards are working for the developer Hill, while Proctor Matthews has teamed up with Countryside on the market housing scheme.

The homes form part of the massive 140 hectare project which includes 3,000 homes, 100,000m ² of research space, a local centre and community facilities including a primary school, nursery, doctors’ surgery, supermarket and retail units.

Other practices working on parts of the extension include Cottrell and Vermeulen, Sarah Wigglesworth Architects, AOC, Wilkinson Eyre, Mole Architects, Stanton Williams, Mecanoo, RH Partnership, Marks Barfield, MUMA, Maccreanor Lavington, and Witherford Watson Mann.

Andy Hill, chief executive officer of Hill, said: ‘Our scheme will deliver distinctive contemporary homes that will appeal to Cambridge’s desire for a highly sustainable lifestyle within this new urban quarter. We are already invested in shaping the future of this historic city and this new community will secure a legacy for future generations.’

Graham Cherry, chief executive officer of Countryside’s New Homes & Communities division added: ‘Working with Proctor and Matthews we will use our design and place making skills to create a quarter that will set new standards for 21st century living.’

Work on the development’s infrastructure is set to start in 2016.
