New Homes

Interiors and Layouts

We have designed all of the proposed new homes to meet modern standards, providing spaces for existing and new residents that are fit for the future. The key principles which have informed our approach include:

Building icon

The majority of new homes looking out in two different directions

Bike icon

All new homes having communal, secure indoor cycle storage

Desk icon

All new homes containing a designated area for working from home

Tape measure icon

Sizes of all new homes meeting Parker Morris Standards or National Space Standards

Lightbulb icon

All new homes achieving high levels of energy efficiency

Conversation icon

All new homes, communal areas and entrances being welcoming and safe

Communal Areas and Amenities

From street to front door

We’ve carefully designed the communal areas of the new buildings to make sure the journey from the street to the front door feels welcoming, convenient and safe.

Responding to feedback

Our approach to entrances and communal areas and facilities has taken on board feedback from the Design Working Group and Residents’ Steering Group:

  • Entrance doors will either be recessed or have a canopy, providing
    shelter
  • Entry doors for ground floor homes will not have large areas of
    glass
  • Lift shafts will be insulated to minimise noise
  • We will consider alternative options to carpets in communal areas
    that help with soundproofing and are easy to maintain
  • Each new block will have a large storage room
