CZWG has worked across various phases of Kidbrooke Village (3,4,5) including Meridian Gate, one of four neighbourhoods of the £1bn masterplan, unique in its location adjacent 35 acres of open space and mature parkland. The 7.3 ha area is bisected by Cator Park, a new ribbon of designated green space linking the north of the development with Sutcliffe Park to the south.
Learning from the first blocks within Phases 4 & 5 to be completed, we worked closely with Berkeley Homes to review and improve the remaining unbuilt blocks, an iterative process including the redesign of the blocks west of South Cator Park along Kidbrooke Park Road.
Five crescent shaped buildings echo the single sweeping convex curve of the Meridian Gate villas to the east. Alternating the plan form from concave to convex widened the gaps between the buildings, benefiting lines of sight and enhancing the sense of South Cator Park extending between them and into the gardens.
We subsequently redesigned the remaining unbuilt blocks within the masterplan alongside elements of the Village Centre (Phase 3) in response to the emerging landscape designs brought forward for South Cator Park: 'Phases 3 & 5 - the 'Greening of the masterplan'.
