Client: PEARL Together | Status: | Location: Colne, Lancashire | Construction Value:
A sustainable development of 79 affordable houses for Colne, on an infill site close to the town centre within a residential neighbourhood.
Good quality public spaces are key within the site; there is a tree lined avenue connecting the vehicle access to a central SUDs pond and recreational space, and a more permeable and accessible neighbourhood has been created by improving the pedestrian footpath surfaces connecting each corner of the site.
The houses are a variety of 2 storey 2, 3 and 4 bedroom affordable homes properties for a local provider. Liberata Architects have encouraged a fabric-first approach; prioritising good levels of air tightness and insulation on the timber frame construction. This approach is supplemented with complimentary sustainable fixtures and fittings, such as; ground source heat pumps, electric car charging facilities and low energy usage appliances.
