Harrison Drive, Cambridge
Harrison Drive has been developed as a joint venture between Hill and Homerton College. The project forms part of a larger mixed use scheme comprising of new teaching facilities and student accommodation, as well as 95 new residential dwellings. These units are a mix of high quality apartments and luxury family houses arranged around attractive landscaped gardens. Located at a significant point along Cambridge’s main railway line, Harrison Drive is the first in a series of developments forming an extended gateway into Cambridge. bptw partnership worked closely with Cambridge Council’s planning department to develop a high quality design that reflects the surrounding context of the site. The buildings’ exteriors were designed as a consistent envelope with a minimal palette of materials, not differentiating between the varying tenures, and a traditional red brick with chalk mortar echoes the aesthetic of nearby Homerton College.
The scheme was designed and delivered in Revit collaborating with the Client, Structural and Mechanical Engineer.
