Newmarket Road Mixed Use Development in Cambridge

Alison Brooks Architects’ mixed use scheme to reactivate a 19th C street off Newmarket Road in Cambridge has won resolution to consent from Cambridge Planning Department.

Newmarket Road

The 12,000 sm project for the UNEX Group presents new urban housing as a device for reinstating diversity, complexity and resilience into a quintessentially suburban context: a shopping mall and office park, surrounded by major traffic intersections.

Alison Brooks Architects’ proposal addresses this context by reconnecting two Cambridge neighbourhoods with a new urban passage, framed by high density housing, in an array of staggered, conjoined point blocks. This development includes 84 new homes, commercial space and basement parking set within eight blocks of varying heights.

The scheme’s stepped massing, inspired by the informal character and variety of nearby Cambridge streetscapes, subtly subdivides the street into landscaped courts in front of each building. The staggered plan and frequency of cores (typically two flats per floor) allows 80% of dwellings to have dual aspect and oblique views along Severn Place.

The primary material is brick with subtle differences in colour, texture and reflectivity giving each apartment block its own identity. Along with generous private balconies, residents will have access to communal roof gardens. Projecting porches and decks onto Severn Place will encourage use of the street as an ‘extended living room’.
