May + Russell focused on the qualities of ‘neighbourhood’ and ‘community’ leading to creation of a village atmosphere.

 

A distinctive domestic architectural design character has been created through provision of a pedestrian scale street structure to achieve a sense of community through ownership, legible circulation, and a series of shared and communal spaces, whilst retaining a strong sense of privacy and safety. The domestic scale architecture is broken into small blocks arranged along pedestrian streets to create a sense of neighbourhood that encourages small scale social groupings.
