Tamworth Estate, Greater Manchester


Our vision for the Tamworth Estate is to create a liveable and sustainable neighbourhood in which people can thrive. A mixed tenure community will be brought together within a landscape that supports their individual identity and shared needs.

The new masterplan fosters a gradual transition from park to city via ‘green finger’ mews streets that reach into the neighbourhood. A central, linear mini-park runs from end-to-end of the site and a focal square creates opportunities for the community to come together. Well-defined, easy to navigate streets and public spaces facilitate walking and interactions between residents. Places for play will be created at different scales throughout the estate: within homes, shared courtyards and a street network that brings the focus back to people.
