Residential development at Newlands Road, Luton
Flanked by the M1 to the West and a local service road to the East, the development on this site has been designed to accommodate more than 400 one and two bed residential units for the Built to Rent market. Linear buildings flank the M1 to create sheltered court yards with views out in to the open countryside. The route of an underground gas main has been designed as the main access route across the site with surface parking. A large basement car park releases a large part of the site as a landscaped amenity area. The residential buildings have been designed to allow for modular construction, resulting in permeable buildings that can respond to the different conditions around the site.
