Fabric First at Nelson Court by studio24 architects


Over the last four years the studio has been working predominantly with local property developers and domestic clients to prepare detailed designs to planning and technical designs for construction. The studio was recently awarded Winner of the 'Best Small Development of the Year - 2016' in the Cambridge Property Awards for Nelson Court - A low energy mixed use residential development on a constrained brownfield site with existing buildings, on the edge of a conservation area. In January 2017 the studio received planning permission for two new family homes at Swavesey and this summer has two projects on site. A highly sustainable residential development 'One88' and a difficult mixed use urban corner site, 114 Mill Road, which will rejuvenate the site of an existing local retailer.
