Innovative Urban House typology meeting the need for higher density housing

Green Park Village is the mixed-use sustainable development of a brownfield site on the outskirts of Reading. Centered on a remodelled lake and incorporating a new station on the Reading/Basingstoke line, the scheme comprises a full range of housing, shops, restaurants, health and support facilities, a new school and a business park.

In order to meet the need for higher density housing, the development incorporates an innovative 'Urban House' typology. With a total floorspace of 95m² the Urban House comfortably exceeds the government's minimum size recommendations but more importantly, it enables development densities of up to 85 dwellings per hectare, twice the density of typical suburban housing.

Carbon reduction and sustainability was also a key consideration, with houses designed to achieve Level 4 Code for Sustainable Homes, while the commercial buildings were designed to BREEAM 'Excellent' standards.
