Axis were asked to look at the redevelopment of a difficult site on the outskirts of Rotherham. A former colliery, the heavily sloping site is tucked away behind the Corton Wood business and retail park and features overhead electricity cables and pylons running across the length of the site. A layout of 153 houses and 80 apartments was achieved, formed around a large linear park which takes advantage of the area under the electricity cables and connects the new development to the wider area, stimulating area regeneration. Building forms and materials marry the aesthetics of the existing houses to the east with the industrial/commercial units to the west, creating a unique development of high quality housing including an affordable element.
