About this project
A MODERN HOME IN THE HEART OF THE SOUTH HAMS
The project aspires to set a leading standard for residential development in a semi-rural setting, through an exciting fusion of sophisticated design, thoughtful masterplanning, advanced engineering and an intelligent integration of landscaping and infrastructure.
Following a public exhibition in January-February 2022 (which was available both online and via a physical exhibition on the Dartington estate), many of you contributed feedback on the initial proposals. We have responded to your feedback here.
about the design
The proposed scheme has been elegantly conceived through a collaboration of pioneers who are renowned worldwide for their community-centred, landscape-led approach to the design of beautiful places: architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and landscape designers Dan Pearson Studio.
Together they have fused the modernist architecture of The Dartington Experiment with the very latest technology, materials, construction methods and landscaping practice to create a replicable modular scheme with impressive environmental credentials, and the ability to adapt to and enrich its setting, whilst reducing construction time on site by 95%.
