The Hill Group
: Pollard Thomas Edwards and Alison Brooks ArchitectsKnights Park is The Hill Group’s vibrant new neighbourhood in Eddington, Cambridge. An exceptional example of a sustainable development, it has the latest state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly features such as mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, triple glazing, solar panels and low LED lighting, which is why it has been given the highest code of sustainability. Nowhere is this better showcased than in The Villas – a superb collection of nine detached, five-bedroom homes which are sustainable by their very nature, designed to adapt to the needs of growing families, offering generous space for work, leisure and play across the generations for the long term.
The Villas have been designed as period homes for the 21st Century. They take the best aspects of classic design – generous and characterful proportions that include high ceilings, large windows and capacious entrance halls – and combine them with the most innovative sustainable technology. Set within Knights Park’s tree-lined streets, with car-free pedestrian and cycle links to schools, shops and other facilities, they also benefit from the development’s sustainable infrastructure including the UK’s largest water recycling system, a district heating network and an underground waste and recycling system. Boasting a Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5 rating, sustainable living is embedded into the very fabric of The Villas, where environmental considerations are synonymous with comfort and convenience.
