Papworth Everard, Cambridge, UK
Irvine Jones Design were approached by M.R.Homes Ltd. in June 2009 to consider the feasibility of developing a site in Papworth Everard located in the south Cambridgeshire district. The site consisted of three derelict and redundant bungalows.
Irvine Jones Design negotiated the site’s appropriate dwelling density with South Cambridgeshire District Council, to maximise the commercial value of the land, whilst at the same time recognising and exploiting the characteristics of the local area. It was agreed that the site was big enough to accommodate four dwellings, two, four bedroom detached dwellings and two, two bedroom semi-detached dwellings.
Planning permission was granted in June 2010 and construction was completed in November 2011.
