Duncombe Square has been designed with a variety of 34, high-quality homes and beautiful outdoor spaces where you can grow and thrive in a community that feels like home. A stunning central green space at the heart of the community is where all residents can relax, play and get to know each other. A range of types and sizes of homes will be available from 1-bedroom apartments to 2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses.

Duncombe Square is designed to support healthy and low carbon lifestyles. Its contemporary 34 homes will be certified to Passivhaus standard, providing comfort and reducing energy use and bills.

This award-winning development has been designed by our architects Mikhail Riches, whose work on affordable Passivhaus homes won them the prestigious Stirling Prize.

Designs for Duncombe Square use traditional materials of brick combined with a contemporary uplift in render and clay tiles, which sits attractively within the local area. The homes' superstructure uses timber frame technology, providing a long-lasting, durable material, the timber is sustainably sourced.

Additional features include a generous green open space at its heart alongside planters and communal growing beds. Shared ‘ginnels’ at the back of the homes, allow access for bikes and create a safe space for children to play and grow up together.
