The Orchard Masterplan, Somerset

Lying at the centre of the market town of Chard, lies an area of untouched land, which was once an orchard. Currently being used as a temporary urban farm, the site's owner approached Forest Architecture to design a residential master-plan. The purpose of the master-plan is to market the site and begin early dialogue with the local authority's planning department.

Our Client asked Forest Architecture to produce various proposals, with a focus on 2-bed homes; as a response to the town's local development plan. 

Project Status: Feasibility
