Tandy’s Lane Housing, Adamstown

MOLA Architecture was appointed by Quintain in 2021 for a housing scheme at Tandy’s Lane on the northern side of the Adamstown Strategic Development Zone, just to the northeast of Airlie Park and immediately to the west of Tandy’s Lane Park.

Planning permission was lodged in April 2022 for a residential scheme comprising of 352 no. houses consisting of 2 and 3 storey units through a mix of semi-detached, detached, and terraced housing, providing 2, 3 and 4 bed houses. The proposal creates people friendly streets and spaces by placing an emphasis on connecting the proposed public realm with the built form of the surrounding areas and roads. There are a hierarchy of buildings, with 3-storey buildings located along the perimeter roads and key focal points within the scheme. There are 3no. pocket parks within the scheme, the composition, shape, and location of which are arranged to create linkages, mark nodal points, street crossings and desire lines.
