Greenwich Millennium Village Housing
The Greenwich Millennium Village provides an urban quarter of approximately 2000 mixed tenure homes on the Greenwich peninsula
The brief was to create a residential development that promotes and supports sustainable living as part of the Greenwich Millennium Village.
Stepped housing profiles filter wind speed and exploit solar gain, and green corridors encourage walking and cycling, while spaces between buildings are determined by micro-climatic factors on the exposed site.
Pre-fabricated construction techniques allow design and construction teams to achieve reductions in pollution and energy use. Innovative partnership schemes ensure full integration of the latest research and development into the design.
Holistic definitions of sustainable development guarantee that more than physical aspects of the development are addressed, through community-based organisations like The Village Trust, are charged with management and maintenance of social and economic issues as well as physical ones.
