CAMAL Architects were employed to design this private housing development in a village on the outskirts of Cambridge.



The proposals consist of 8 new homes on the site of a service yard which currently serves an adjacent industrial unit.

The design of the scheme had to address the character of the conservation area in which the site is located and also protect the setting of the adjacent listed building. Appropriate to the locality and building type, the buildings are modest in scale and utilise locally derived materials and design elements; relying on painted render, local stock bricks, lead porchroofs, clay pantile roofs and painted external timber joinery to reflect the existing built environment in an appropriate manner.
