Architectural design and technical delivery

Clay farm is a development of high quality mixed tenure homes for Cala Homes set within the overall masterplan of the Great Knighton urban extension on the fringe of Cambridge.

The project responded to a detailed design briefing from Cala Homes. The contemporary nature of the project and the number of housing typologies was a challenge on this previous farmland site.

The project delivery looks to preserve and protect to planning consent which was in place prior to Mark Bells involvement. The project delivers flats, terraced, semi and detached housing with modern shared surfacing to mews and streets. The houses provide modern flexible accommodation on 3 floors with contemporary detailing of secret gutters, high quality glazing and timber cladding.

Mark Bell Architects worked alongside Cala Homes to deliver these homes on time and to a tight budget.
