Mountfield Park wins Best New Neighbourhood Award

We are pleased to report that Mountfield Park is one of this year’s winners at the Housing Design Awards.

Designed by award-winning architects Proctor & Matthews, this development has been designed for 21st Century lifestyles, with the first 140 homes to set a new standard of home building in Canterbury.

The masterplan for Mountfield Park was developed with the help of two design reviews by D:SE, and this first phase also received advice from our panel.

The development is arranged as six residential clusters and will feature a rich mix of colours, textures and materials which is a trademark featured across the practice’s extensive collection of residential projects. The public realm and landscape strategy is at the heart of this scheme, each cluster will feature a series of courts with an orchard style landscape focus.

Alongside these new homes there will also be a range of community services, including plans to build two new primary schools, a doctors’ surgery, local shops and a new community centre. These facilities will be centrally located and a network of pedestrian and cycle routes will provide easy access.
