Beyond Green, Cambridge, 2016
Mole Architects worked with FCB Studios and 5th Studio on a scheme for 250 houses on the Cambridge University Northwest expansion. From an open expression of interest, the Beyond Green team were one of three shortlisted developers invited to compete. The scheme is based around four typologies; shared garden courts, mews alleys, flats over parking with a raised garden deck, and suburban linked villas- the last two being designed in detail by Mole. Beyond Green have a strong vision of 'proper streets', abundant green, a reduction in car use and collective sociable living.
