PROGRAMME: Master Planning






The proposed scheme brief was to design up-to 750 units, Public Open Spaces, Village Centre and School on a unallocated site. A Figure Ground study was carried out of the surrounding villages to understand the relationship of the built and unbuilt form, the site is naturally divided into four areas, this enabled us to create four character areas in order to stitch the traditional urban form of Little Dunmow and the more Contemporary Flitch Green. Bdesign7 Ltd was subcontracted to produce the design and architecural information for the application. Masterplan was produced using BIM which allowed us to prepare and update unit type schedule for our client as the design was developed.
