Individuality, self sufficiency and added sophistication characterise urban and rural designs in the South West
Looking at the satellite image of the South West region, our towns and cities are very compact, sitting in a carpet of farmland, moorlands, waterways and coastal reserves. Because of this direct physical contact between city and country, the lessons from each are undiluted. Our towns are densifying but able to retain their individuality by tapping into the intrinsic self-sufficient rural character of the region. And in the country, we see a sophistication of new rural buildings that are place inspired. We can expect crafted buildings and exquisite landscapes that reflect an independent spirit to come through in the years ahead – both in town and country.
