St.Bernards Lawn, Solihull

Residential Development

The Group designed this development of bespoke houses and apartments at St Bernard’s Lawns for CALA Homes to take advantage of the open aspect of the land around Olton Mere, a reservoir containing an important landscape and wildlife environment.

Twenty-two spacious houses and thirty-nine apartments are arranged around landscaped courts. The steeply pitched roofs and contrasting panels of multi-red brickwork and pastel coloured boarding create a group of dwellings with their own special character and appearance and complement the wooded setting. The projecting balconies and large areas of glazing allow views over the open landscape and the private patios provide intimate enclosed spaces for summer entertaining.
