Sustainable housing in Meridian Water
We’re delighted to be announced as runners-up in a competition to design a zero-carbon community for Meridian Water in Enfield. The proposal, titled Gardensity, developed in conjunction with Grow Tottenham, Susan Parham, Webb Yates, Hoare Lea, Human City, Arcadis and Savills comprises a resilient and sustainable urban community centred on food production at different scales.
The design for a typical urban block proposes large family dual-aspect scissor flats with generous gardens that can be used for growing and which provide excellent amenity. Communal allotments on the roof together with urban gardening and markets on the ground floor make for a self-sustaining community.
We are delighted that we will be working alongside the competition winners Assael and co-runners-up Henley Halebrown to develop these proposals further.
