Achieving over 1100 new homes, integrated with a rich landscape network, Stoneham will provide a fantastic new community within an historic parkland setting. HGP worked closely with our client, (Highwood Homes) and the consultant team to deliver this ambitious masterplan to Eastleigh Borough Council.
The masterplan focuses on creating landscape rich spaces, all feeding into the central Avenue Park and woodlands to the edge. Houses and flats have been designed to maximise views to these spaces, whilst creating active street frontages and courtyards as part of the journey through the development.
Designed character areas are established within the development, giving a rich variety to the proposal. This is done through material choice, density, height and parking solutions giving each area its own recognisable identity from the next. The housetypes, however, are consistent throughout, creating an order and clarity across the scheme whilst maintaining principles of creating a fantastic place to live.
Supporting the new community are local facilities including a new school, offices, retail and an age restricted ‘Mansion House’ over looking Avenue Park.
