Welborne is a major new settlement being planned in Hampshire using the design philosophy of the Garden City Movement. We have been working alongside the visionary landowner, Buckland, for some five years now, taking forward the schematic masterplan into reality.  Construction work commences in 2023 which will see ground breaking on this long-term, legacy project.

We have worked through the process – developing the street network and movement patterns, working with the landscape architect Kim Wilkie to create a powerful landscape-led framework to the town, and designing and writing the architectural and materials code for the entire settlement. The plans will create a place of significant architectural variety, but still with a strongly developed overall sense of place and harmony.  There is a huge concentration on proper delivery of commercial and mixed use development, and affordable housing.

In 2022, we moved towards the first phase detailed application, working alongside CG Fry, Pye Homes (and Adam Urbanism) and Thakeham Homes to bring forward a co-ordinated application for some 750 homes.
