Competition for Letchworth Garden City
In October 2018 PCH-a took part in a competition involving master plan concepts for a proposed residential development to a 45 Hectare site to the north of Letchworth, which would be the first expansion to the Garden City. The competition attracted PCH-a as well as other practices from around the globe.
Our masterplan proposal includes various neighbourhoods of different characters, all connected to retail, sustainable transport, community allotments, schools and green areas for walking and cycling.
The indicative housing proposals are an innovative design built to passive house standards and all designed around a single module idea that can be laid out as either a series of terraces, a single family home or as flats of up to 4 storeys high.
Our proposal was an exciting team effort and one that we can feel proud of.
