Gateway Housing Competition
This competition entry for the Gateway Housing Association develops the ‘greening of the city’ principles of the Prototype Green Terrace by integrating landscape and architecture within a very low carbon or zero carbon development.
The U-shaped site layout creates a south facing courtyard garden as the heart of the project, allowing a wide range of spaces and activities within a safe, enclosed setting.
The house plans have been designed to allow flexibility in use and to accommodate future change. The layouts meet the Secured by Design and Lifetime Homes standards as well as providing a minimum of Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. The design has potential to achieve Level 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes with the use of on site renewables.
