This City Centre Urban Design scheme in Milton Keynes responds to the location with high-density homes with a difference. Using innovative formats to create a large proportion of family homes as well as the more familiar apartments, the design uses ‘stacked duplex’ units set around shared courtyard spaces.

Building form and orientation maximise both daylight and solar penetration to complement its strong sustainability credentials. Being a mixed-use site, the design incorporates a mini social community including: a hotel, offices, a gym and restaurants.
