Brampton Park, Huntingdonshire - Heritage
Woods Hardwick was appointed to undertake the Masterplan and Urban Design for the whole of the Brampton Park (former RAF Base). This site contained 20th century military offices – to be demolished – as well as Listed Buildings, Listed Walled Gardens. The whole site was also an Arboretum. The proposed Walled Garden was particularly interesting as the wall was listed and immediately adjacent to the Listed Brampton Park House and Coachhouses. Designing a sense of place and securing Consents required a collaborative approach between disciplines. The design proposed a cluster of modest, yet beautifully proportioned cottages outward looking onto the listed wall, creating a unique and intimate community of homes. This part of the site is now under construction and due to be completed, along with the wider site, by 2021.
