Cherry Tree Lane, Rainham, Essex

This 22 unit mixed-use scheme in Rainham, Essex for Cubitt Greystock and a joint venture Housing Association partner provided over 70% of the units as a combination of shared ownership, social rent and affordable housing, all designed to meet Lifetime Homes, Habinteg Standards and Housing Quality Indicators.  

Both the houses and apartments were designed to achieve a minimum Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. The proposed buildings and their configuration have been developed in relation to the site and its immediate environment. Careful consideration was taken in determining the scale, mass and height of the proposals and how this related to the public and private open spaces and the neighbouring properties.  

This project was undertaken when Jim Richards was Director of Richards Partington Architects.
