Gateshead College Housing Scheme
Turley designed the masterplan and bespoke house types for this challenging site. Working for Miller Homes the Turley team crafted a design appropriate to the unique location. This evolved through several workshops with the local authority, and engagement with the local community. Alongside designers at Miller Homes, Turley designed bespoke homes and apartments which were a contemporary architectural interpretation of the local vernacular.
The scheme received unanimous approval and has subsequently received a ‘very good’ rating in Gateshead’s housing design audit, for a commitment to high quality placemaking. The site is also sited regularly as an ‘exemplar’ of contemporary housing development.
