Stephen George & Partners was proud to be appointed masterplan architect for Dickens Heath, a dynamic new village in the West Midlands. Our task was to integrate 8,640 sqm (93,000 sqft) of retail and commercial development alongside 462 dwellings.
The design of the residential element addresses a wide range of social needs, from studio apartments to large town houses. These form individual environments with distinct character to encourage community life.
Dickens Heath is a vital and vibrant community. Its unique waterside development is linked with other residential zones through a sequence of static and dynamic urban spaces and pedestrian routes.
To maximise the diversity of the village, a wide range of mixed uses and activities have been accommodated, creating an environment of genuine quality and durability.
