‘The palette of materials, predominantly brickwork, reflects the traditional materiality found in the domestic architecture of Cambridge. At ground level this expresses itself as a brick plinth connected visually with the materials and activities within the landscape. Above this level the building forms are strongly articulated through use of recessed brick piers and horizontal precast concrete cills, with the level of detail on different buildings varied to respond to the character of specific spaces.’Stanton Williams, Architect
