Project Details

The site is located within Wilstead, a small settlement to the south of Bedford.  The area  is undergoing significant change as a result of the new town of Wixams, a residential led mixed use scheme including around 4,500 new dwellings, schools, community facilities and a mixed use centre, supported by a range of retail and commercial uses.  This site is surrounded by the Wixams development.

The scheme provides seven detached dwellings, on a site area of 0.33 hectares, which achieves a density of around 21 dwellings per hectare. This is consistent with the density proposals for the Wixams development which indicates a density of up to 35 dwellings per hectare for this part of Village One.  The dwelling mix includes a range of 3, 4, 5 and 6 bedroom houses.

The elevations have adopted a style and character based on the emerging development of the area by using:

A mix of brick and render finishes
Traditional style windows
Traditional brickwork detailing to openings
Steeply duo-pitched roofs finished in plain style tiles
Dwellings adopting a symmetrical arrangement
Features proportioned to reflect the scale and style of the surrounding area
