We secured planning permission for a major urban expansion to the rural village of Wootton, Bedfordshire. The 700 dwelling concept with associated school and community facility was developed around the primary principle that green open space would dictate the urban form and grain of the entire development. The site, informal and contemporary in design, provided a green focal space at the heart of the scheme, with a network of green walkways meandering through to the peripheral edges of the site, to integrate with the existing settlement and context of the village. The scheme is built and has been the inspiration for further expansion.
