Shortstown, Bedford

Bedford Pilgrims, Jephsons and Presentation Housing Association

The site on the outskirts of Bedford near Cardington airship hangers had many mature trees that we were keen to keep. The solution was to design around the trees as far as possible and those that could not be designed around were physically moved to new positions. The scheme comprises 73 houses for 3 separate clients, and by careful use of the space efficient house types, good space standards and a spacious site layout has been achieved.
