Redeham Homes’ Accordia Living, the striking residential scheme in Cambridge, has become the UK’s most award winning development having scooped a staggering 19 accolades to date in recognition for its outstanding design and leading contemporary architecturally classic homes. Wide ranges of publications and bodies have credited the scheme from national newspapers to the creme de la creme – RIBA Stirling Prize.
The multi award-winning scheme was designed by a team of renowned architects including Feilden Clegg Bradley, Alison Brooks Architects and Macreanor Lavington Architects. Countryside Properties initially purchased the former government office site and developed phase one of the scheme before later selling it to Surrey based developer, Redeham Homes to continue the development of the remaining phases. The end result is an architecturally dynamic, innovative and unique scheme which offers one of the most desirable and striking new build residential developments in the UK.
Pam Reardon, Sales and Marketing Director of Redeham Homes comments: “At Redeham Homes we specialise in providing imaginative and design-led homes over and above what would be expected in the local market maximising the potential available and this is extremely evident at Accordia Living.”
“Being an award-winning project has really helped give us the edge and stand out from the crowd not to mention enhance our reputation. It has been an exciting few years for us as Accordia Living has gone from strength to strength and the recognition that we have received from both inside the industry and beyond has been fantastic. Not to mention the positive effect this has had on generating sales.”
Accordia Living comprises a total of 203 one and two bedroom apartments and three and four bedroom townhouses. The high quality contemporary development sits perfectly with its surroundings and the grand period houses of Brooklands Avenue. It is set in excess of eight acres of mature landscaping and has been designed with the focus of creating a close, cohesive community with green open spaces. The existing natural landscape combined with the 700 established trees onsite has dictated the design theme for Accordia Living – a layout themed around the idea of “living in a garden.”
The scheme takes an innovative approach to external spaces and there is a strong landscape framework, with courtyards, roof terraces, large balconies, communal gardens and play areas scattered throughout the streets and squares – all designed as an integral part of the architecture. Additional landscaping includes the creation of a wildlife corridor adjacent to Hobson’s Brook, an important area for a range of wildlife, including animals like Kingfishers, Pipistreele Bats and Foxes.
Homes at Accordia Living feature striking modern facades incorporating contemporary finishings as well as the use of natural materials which have been chosen for their ability to age gracefully. Materials such as Green Oak, Red Lauro timber, copper cladding, and granite walls, which are all prevalent in the Cambridge area and gives the city its unique character are utilised in the construction of the homes.
The development’s contemporary architecture is also reflected in the modern interiors of the apartments and houses incorporating luxurious wet rooms to all designs. Open living areas and large windows are combined with terraces and balconies to provide buyers with flexible living spaces that benefit from extensive natural light, with some boasting fantastic views of Hobson Brook and the surrounding gardens.
Accordia Living is individual by design and promotes architectural flair seamlessly throughout the development, fusing together top quality layout, specification and landscaping to produce a variety of inspirational homes. The scheme is a stunning and extremely successful example of cutting edge architectural innovation and Accordia Living’s unique approach to external spaces through its strong landscaping framework provides residents with a welcoming sanctuary and green living environment.
