Willow Close

A crescent plan has been used in the design of 63 apartments and ground-level homes to rent for the over-55’s.

Willow Close

The development acts as a gateway to Newbury and forms the focal feature of the local park. Materials and massing carefully reflect the existing character of the town with design features such as gabion walls and winter gardens.

The high quality design of the affordable apartments has excellent space standards and private balconies or terraces. The central gables include mezzanine levels providing residents with a home office, one of the features that aims to future-proof this development. All homes incorporate combined heat and power and photovoltaics, achieving CfSH Level 3.

“The key to the design was to create homes that residents could personalise coupled with shared areas to socialise.”
