Working in partnership with Countryside Properties, the National Trust wanted to create a new community of sustainable and desirable homes to provide funds to pay for restoration works on the Grade I Listed Italianate Cliveden Estate. LDA Design worked closely with the architects to establish a masterplan that responded to the sensitive setting and context while creating a new landscape within the framework of the estate. Cliveden Village is now an exemplary development that integrates landscape and architecture seamlessly. The layout uses passive design principles, orientation, solar water heating and thermal mass to allow the properties optimum natural light and heat.
