Update: High Street Hebden Bridge

We are proud to be working with Calder Valley Community Land Trust in Hebden Bridge to design new low-energy housing for affordable rent. This location was previously home to hundreds of local workers living in dense terraces of 3 and 4 storey houses on a steeply sloping site, typical to the topography of the Calder Valley. Delighted that CVCLT would like to reinstate housing in this location, and the old High Street. Our design optimises plan depth and orientation for passive solar benefit and the landscaping strategy will alleviate flood risk. We are designing low-impact, low-energy, affordable & beautiful homes!
