Hills Road, Cambridge
Hills Road is one of the principle routes into Cambridge City from the south. Situated on the east side of Hills Road, opposite Addenbrooke’s Hospital, PiP were commissioned to design a traditional 2 storey dwelling following demolition of the existing house at No.305 Hills Road.
Taking inspiration from an “Arts & Crafts” traditional design style, the project is set within a bold building that features distinctive forms expressed through the dramatic chimneys, asymmetrical gabled roofs, and classical pediment from which the stepped entrance protrudes. Stone cornicing and bespoke detailing give an essence of elegance that is often missed within contemporary homes. Living accommodation is provided at ground floor level and the bedroom accommodation is provided on the floor above. The new home reflects the current scale with its plot size whilst being comparable to other dwellings along this section of Hills Road and the areas general local pattern of development.
