Poundbury

DORSET

Hackett Holland teamed with 3 other Practices and worked closely with Masterplanner Leon Krier to design this traditional high density, mixed used neighbourhood for the Duchy of Cornwall at the edge of Poundbury.  Despite the presence of the ‘Parkway’, this South-facing site has magnificent views towards Maiden Castle and the coast.  The appropriately hard urban edge is reinforced by the ‘bastion wall’ which makes reference to historic town walls, and strengthens the pleasing contrast between urban and rural.
