The Meadows Preston
The Meadows is an urban variety of the village pasture – a private amenity space shared between a few houses allowing a new sense of community to grow between hedges and low garden walls, paved walkways, trees and cycles parked in sight of living rooms and terraces.
The scheme integrates high quality housing with an urban landscape and stages the interaction of people on a common ground. Here everyone has their front door to the street with their kids playing safely with friends out the back.
Studio Moren’s aim is to restructure and urbanise a previously misplaced suburban site, bringing density, a legible townscape, continuity in the street scene and enclosure to the block and its internal amenity spaces.
