Cargo, Millbay, Plymouth

Client: English Cities Fund

Award:
'Best Housing Scheme' in the 2009 Royal Institute of British Architects Town & Country Design Awards.

Location: Millbay, Plymouth

The Cargo development at Millbay, Plymouth is the first phase of a major redevelopment project and sets a high standard for the remaining phases. The public realm design required a high quality approach to meet the local authority's requirements.

Working closely with the architect (Acanthus Ferguson Mann) we developed a series of options for the courtyard space which also needed to incorporate private terrace areas and access to the car park and service area below. The mixed use development comprises of a series of townhouses, apartments and offices set around a high quality roof garden courtyard.

The project won the prestigious 'Best Housing Scheme' in the 2009 Royal Institute of British Architects Town & Country Design Awards.
