Fabric First at Nelson Court by studio24 architects


Over the last five years the studio has been working predominantly with local property developers and domestic clients, preparing designs to planning and technical designs for construction. The studio won 'Best Small Development of the Year' at the Cambridge Property Awards for Nelson Court in 2016 - A low energy mixed use residential development on a constrained brownfield site at the edge of a conservation area. In October 2017 the studio received planning permission for two new family homes, in the conservation area at Shepreth. This year we completed developments at 114 Mill Road and 188 Histon Road, Cambridge. A highly sustainable new residential development and a difficult mixed use urban corner site respectively. We're currently working on remodelling and extending a Grade II Listed cottage, updating a Victorian terrace for the 21st century and remodelling a post war 1950's detached suburban house using prefabricated timber technology.
