New Lidcote and Cumnor forms the second new-build development proposal within the Stockwell Park estate regeneration. The development provides 139 new homes, of which 48 are extra care apartments and six are family houses.
The main source of design inspiration has been the development of a brick grid structure that allows the building to achieve a sense of unity and coherence within a very diverse context. This has allowed a very contemporary design to develop whilst reflecting materials that are found within the adjacent conservation area.
A secure, landscaped garden is located in the centre of the scheme, above an underground car park. This will provide both physical and visual amenity to residents in all the homes, incorporating private gardens to houses, communal space for apartments and a secure sensory garden for the extra care residents.
