This village masterplan development comprises 400 houses with a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bed terraced and semi-detached units as well as three storey apartment blocks, a supermarket, commercial units and nursery school.

Hamilton Architects co-ordinated the project team of architects and engineers located in Ireland and Poland, including setting up a web portal to facilitate effective communication, including the transfer of information and regular programme updates.

We designed the scheme from first principles, establishing a hierarchy network of tree lined streets and green open spaces derived from pedestrian and vehicular movement. We created interest with varying house styles at different locations throughout the village. A green landscaped corridor runs through the site and a large pond is used for water attenuation.

Planning and building control approval have been received for this major development located beside a forest near Warsaw.
