We are thrilled to announce that our scheme on the largescale regeneration of the Craylands Estate in Basildon has been shortlisted for a Housing Design Award. Beechwood Village for client Swan Housing Association will be constructed by Swan’s construction arm, Nu Living. bptw’s architects produced the overall masterplan for the regeneration project, and have designed a detailed phase for 300 homes in the North and South of the existing site.
The masterplan provides a genuine community focus with environmental and landscaping improvements throughout the development, and the homes are designed to reflect the surrounding buildings. The scheme will use off-site manufacture to produce volumetric components made from cross laminated timber, which will deliver cost and construction efficiencies throughout the 10-year development programme.
Winners will be announced on 10th July. You can see the full shortlist here: http://hdawards.org/shortlist
