Cressing custom self-build
This is an innovative and sustainable development of nine self-build dwellings in the village of Cressing that seeks to address questions of affordable homes. These serviced plots of land are to be sold direct to self-builders who will seek their own reserved matters approval and act as their own developer. The proposed design has an alternating combination of deep and shallow plan detached dwellings of differing floor areas linked through scale, materiality and the architectural language of the architectural design code. The material palette that binds all types and configurations together reflects the vernacular Essex tradition.
