A central community hub, inspired by the concept of a farmstead, is the heart of a new sustainable housing development designed to encourage communal living. FarmFolk features flexible workspace, a farm shop and food hall for communal dining, and stalls for local vendors.
The landscape masterplan seeks to bring together contemporary living with sustainability for those who want to live closer to nature. The edible gardens, communal garden and orchard will create a strong community and both the planting palette and landscape have been selected to create year-round interest, as well as ecological benefits for wildlife and insects.
The communal green sits in the middle of the residential development with a cluster of mature trees and surrounded by colourful swathes of seasonal bulbs and wildflowers.
