Terminus Drive, Basildon, Essex, England
Initial masterplan proposal for the re-generation of a brown field site to provide 270 high quality new homes.
This site is designated for employment use but has laid empty for over two decades. Bordered by an elevated dual carriageway on the north and a waste handling facility on the south, the environmental impacts and creating a high-quality residential neighbourhood in the midst of these adjacent land uses presented the biggest challenges. Good site access and the adjacent mainline train station enabled us to consider potentially higher densities. The overall masterplan has been developed with a road and parking buffer zone along the northern boundary, a green buffer zone along the south boundary and ample green spaces between the residential blocks. A truly sustainable approach to both the site layout and the design of the buildings has been applied in order to create an outstanding re-generation proposal.
