Little Herberts Road

This development of seven new dwellings on the outskirts of Cheltenham adjacent to an area of outstanding natural beauty for a local developer is a site specific response to the unique challenges of its location.


Linearity of the site planning is derived from the existence of the disused railway on the site and the desire to express the memory of the cutting in the design. This has informed not only the site layout, but also the levels of the houses, partially sunken to maximise the potential of the depth of the cutting.

Each house is unique, but designed using a language of interlocking elements of brick and timber weatherboarding to create cohesion between the different plots, whilst allowing each house to be influenced by its context in relation to views, aspect and history.
