Coed Darcy

Coed Darcy is a major brownfield regeneration site in South Wales. Occupying the site of the former BP Llandarcy Oil Refinery, which was decommissioned in the 1990s, Coed Darcy will contain 4000 houses in a sustainable mixed-used community.

The project is being masterplanned by The Prince’s Foundation and Alan Baxter Associates.

A site was selected to build a small number of houses to demonstrate the quality that will be sought on the site as a whole. The buildings test a range of building materials, types and sustainable technologies before they are applied on a wider scale.

We were selected to design the buildings and have drawn our inspiration from the simple local vernacular. In a number of years, the site will be incorporated into the wider masterplan and the houses will be occupied.
