Living Villages Housing
client: Living Villages
location: Truro, Cornwall
Following the entry to an invited design competition, KAST has been selected to join a team of designers and builder to help develop Higher Newham Village in Truro in Cornwall.
The project will be delivered over a series of phases and Living Villages aim to foster a wide and diverse range of approaches to help realise this exciting and innovative project over the coming years.
Our low energy and highly efficient house designs make reference to the Cornish Vernacular and identify strongly with the local environment. the village will gather the worlds of food, farming, education and homes in the same place.
The designs will be developed throughout 2017 and 2018, with the first homes occupied by the summer of 2019.
