Lakeview Quarry, Keinton Mandeville

Acting on behalf of Galion Homes, the site owners, we developed proposals for an exciting new development in a redundant stone quarry and conceived as a natural urban extension to this historic village. The site will deliver a mix of 42 new homes with 1000m2 of office space. Units range from 2 and 3 beds for affordable rent up to large, detached 5 bedroom houses (3000sqft) set within plots of 0.3ha.

The development has been designed as a high quality, traditional scheme based around an organic site layout and constructed largely from blue lias stone quarried from the site along with natural roofing materials and detailing typical of the local vernacular. Public open space, archaeology, wildlife mitigation and drainage aspects were all carefully considered as an integral part of the design.
