Highfields Farm

Location: Littleport, Cambridgeshire
Client: Cannon Kirk Homes
Status: Phase 1 Completed in 2006

Project Description:
Highfields Farm is a village extension to the town of Littleport, situated some six miles east of Ely in South East Cambridgeshire. A key concern has been to maintain the primacy of the pedestrian, creating safe ‘green routes’ throughout the development.

Within the 650 unit development there are clear neighbourhoods; each neighbourhood has a group of feature buildings within it which set the theme and context for each area. A vocabulary of local vernacular details have been chosen for the houses. In order to compliment the variety of the streetscape, the design team have developed 30 new house types which are specific to this development. Flats, houses, modern apartments and town houses help deliver an exciting and varied streetscape.
