Penmead Close, Cornwall

The brief for this housing scheme in Penmead Close, Delabole was to design 10 dwellings for rent to local people on an infill site in the centre of town. The site was formally owned by North Cornwall District Council.

  • There were considerable constraints on the site as there were existing dwellings on all four boundaries in relatively close proximity; it was also a requirement of the scheme to create a contemporary design solution with sustainable credentials.
  • The scheme also won an ECO BUILDING OF THE YEAR AWARD in the 2008 Western Morning News / Michelmores Awards Scheme.
