Eddington - Lot 1

CAMBRIDGE 2019

Shortlisted for the Neave Brown Award for Housing 2019

Working with Wilkinson Eyre and Mole architects BBUK have designed a courtyard garden for this mixed-use scheme, situated north of Cambridge, comprising under graduate and post graduate housing, a health centre, energy centre and a supermarket.  The garden is separated into a series of spaces of various sizes divided by native hedges; at the heart of the garden is a large communal dining table to encourage community cohesion.

 

More private roof gardens are provided at the upper levels for use by the undergraduates.  A shade garden of ferns, grasses and silver birch trees provides calming views from the health centre.
