Lot M3 occupies a landmark site within Cambridge University’s Eddington development, providing 106 highly sustainable private sale apartments that will complete the central market square. A striking east facing façade of stepping bay windows overlooks the new cricket pitch, behind which all the homes are linked by a sheltered north-south courtyard that gives light and airy circulation.
PTE is providing a full service from concept to completion.
The scheme emphasises the importance of quality shared and public areas and incorporates two floors of street facing gallery/exhibition space at the prominent corner of the site. Resident facilities include a porter’s lodge, club room, secure underground parking and extensive managed rooftop gardens.
The compact courtyard and rich architectural modelling echo the intricacy of historic Cambridge in a contemporary idiom. The low carbon (CfSH level 5) buildings are arranged across eight blocks, ranging in height from 3 to 5 storeys, with most homes having dual aspect accommodation.
Working alongside Hill, the proposals were developed in close collaboration with the University and connect to the new low carbon district energy centre and innovative network of underground waste collection points.
