OVERVIEW

Elmsbrook Local Centre

The Elmsbrook Local Centre is a zero carbon mixed-use development  will provide affordable housing, community centre, retail spaces, a café, offices, a nursery and a public realm at the heart of the development.        

Our design creates a distinct community heart for Elmsbrook, responding to the eco-town credentials of the development. Located at the centre of phase 1 of the Elmsbrook eco-town, the community centre provides a variety of flexible spaces to ensure the needs of the community will be met now and in the future. External areas connect to the wider landscape through an integrated landscape design that is sensitive to its green context, enhancing biodiversity and creating a sense of place.

The wellbeing of the residents drove the design of the apartments. Each apartment has been designed to meet high environmental standards and are orientated to maximise views over the River Corridor and wider landscape. Clearly defined resident entrances create activity along all elevations and help to identify the separate functions, furthermore, each apartment has access to a generous balcony providing valuable private external space.                

In addition to architecture and landscape design, ADP provided environmental consultancy for the scheme, achieving a highly efficient, low energy, and zero carbon design.
