St. John’s Court, Newport, UK
Client: Newport City Homes
Tenure: Social housing
St John’s Court is a 100% affordable residential scheme designed for Newport City Homes Housing Association, located in Rogerstone, approximately 4km from Newport town centre. The residential plan will deliver a range of apartments, bungalows, over 55’s accommodation and houses for social rent.
Two distinct sites make up the basis of the development, with a mix of housing and apartments situated on the northern site, while over 55’s accommodation and bungalows make up the southern site. Development is designed to positively respond to the topography of the site, providing active frontages and overlooking onto existing streets. The over 55’s accommodation has a residential courtyard at its core, flanked by the bungalows to create a strong social space for the new community.
Landscaping is key to the schemes integration, with a number of protected mature tress onsite being incorporated into the design at early stages.
