Eco-build scheme for new sustainable community
This scheme for Cornhill Estates is part of Phase 2 at Merton Rise, a new sustainable community on the edge of Basingstoke, being developed by Hampshire County Council.
This site is intended as a showcase for exemplar sustainable design, with all homes striving to achieve zero CO2 emissions – Code Level 6 of the Code of Sustainable Homes. We have designed a family of houses to suit a range of households, each sharing common themes but with their own distinctive character.
The 17 houses are grouped into short terraces, forming a consistent and strong building line to the street, with the larger, four-bed houses being set in prominent landmark locations. The houses take full advantage of the south-facing slope having photovoltaic panels on the roof to maximise on-site energy generating potential.
