This project is a part of Beyond Green Developments’ bid to develop 250 homes for the University of Cambridge. The landscape proposal aims to deliver high quality streets and integrated green infrastructure to create a high quality residential environment.

The intention is to create a strong sense of place in combination with a functional and recreational approach to the use of rainwater. The landscape displays three objectives:

  • Reclaim the streets. Green streets rich in landscape quality and activity – front gardens and incidental shared spaces and facilities, contributing to public life.
  • Outside: everywhere. A place where there is easy access to all kinds of outdoors from front and back gardens to shared open spaces beyond.
  • Abundant green. It proposes a more coherent system of rainwater use and abundant green. It connects to the local masterplan to achieve a greener type of urban place, which encourages biodiversity and dispersal corridors.
