Occupying the central portion of the new Eddington quarter of Cambridge, this was a complex brief with a number of potentially conflicting elements, including a Sainsbury’s superstore, the combined heat and power ‘Energy Centre’, a doctor’s surgery, offices, and a variety of housing units of different types. All elements have been thought through carefully, and the result is an exemplar of integrated urban design.
