Design at the heart of a new housing scheme

A cluster of new homes being developed by EDG Property on a major new housing scheme are set to be designed by the same team behind the award-winning The School Yard in Birmingham.

EDG Property has submitted a planning application for 23 new units on the Priors Hall Park development in Corby, Northamptonshire, which have been designed by Birmingham based BPN Architects.

BPN is one of the city’s most innovative architect firms and designed the residential phase of The School Yard scheme in Harborne Village Birmingham, which was completed last year.

Priors Hall Park is one of the largest development projects in the UK, which will see more than 5,000 new homes, new schools, a retail hub and 1 million sq ft of commercial space developed around parkland over the next 10 years.

The majority of the houses on Priors Hall Park are being developed by national house-builders such as Barratt, David Wilson and Taylor Wimpey while EDG Property is planning to develop small clusters throughout the scheme, which will deliver a completely different offer for buyers.

EDG director Neil Edginton said: “Priors Hall Park is a high quality development that is creating an exciting new community in Northamptonshire, an increasingly popular part of the country with strong links into major employment hubs such as Birmingham, Milton Keynes and even the capital.

“Like any development of this scale, it is important that there is the right mix of housing and as part of that process EDG Property is working with BPN to create 23 really exceptional detached houses that will offer a variation in the context of the overall development.

“The architect-designed homes will be three storeys with key design elements including open plan living, large expanses of glass to maximise views and huge roof terraces overlooking the parkland. We hope they will be a welcome addition to the Priors Hall Park success story.”
