Project Description

Name – Samares Nursery
Client – GR Langois Ltd.
Location – St. Clement, Jersey

The proposed redevelopment of this redundant horticultural site will provide 200 new homes, 80% of which will be for the social rented market.

The development is broken into a series of pavilion apartments and terraced courtyards that relate to the smaller urban grain of the surrounding context whilst establishing a series of distinct spaces or neighbourhoods.

The neighbourhood principle is reinforced through the use of different materials, varied architectural detail, boundaries and enclosure, pocket green spaces and a particular landscape strategy for each zone.

This approach is intended to impart a heightened sense of ownership, whilst providing an attractive, safe and welcoming place to live. The different neighbourhoods also respond to their particular surrounding context respecting scale, privacy and existing amenity.
