Marmalade Lane, Cambridge – Projects
- Mass Housing
- TrivselhusUK / TOWN
Marmalade Lane is a co-housing development of 42 homes in Cambridge. It includes a Common House for people to meet, eat and do their laundry. A shared garden with space for kids’ play and market garden where food can be grown.
Homes are laid out as terraces around a shared-space lane and as apartments overlooking the communal garden. Properties are privately owned and range from one-bedroom flats to five-bedrooms houses. A multi option ‘Custombuild’ approach allowed residents to create a bespoke home using a flexible series of selector features for both internal arrangements, as well as external colours of bricks and front doors.
Construction is fully prefabricated with a Swedish closed panel timber frame by Trivselhus used for the houses, and a cross laminated timber frame for the apartment block / common house. Factory integrated BIM was used to coordinate and deliver the final kit assembly.
