[PETERBOROUGH VILLAGE MIXED USE COMPETITION SUBMISSION]
Competition Entry

Our design proposal is a dynamic response to the brief focusing on the historical spring characteristics of the site. The river has always been the gathering point of activities in historical times, our aim was to recreate the vibrant atmosphere associated with it. Our main focuses were on ‘sense of place’ , ‘timber buildings’ and green connections, We took the 1950’s underground spring map as our starting point and focused on using the corresponding land above as shared spaces where public interaction can take place. Our built spaces are closely interlinked with alternative circulation routes running at different levels both for public and private use. Our design cultivates green space as an echoing element to the surrounding green frame, with the addition of green roofs and gardens it not only encourages public interaction but also decreases the heat island effect.
