Accordia, Brooklands Avenue

History of Accordia, Brooklands Avenue

Pevsner (Cambridgeshire 2014 p.330) writes:

Accordia is the name of a big residential development of 2002-11 by Countryside Properties. Here is domestic architecture of a scale, ambition and quality to match that of the colleges, humanely and generously planned, and with a good proportion of well-integrated social housing. The masterplanners and chief architects were Feildon Clegg Bradley … especially memorable is the alternation of front-and-back aspects along the mews like private streets … in some aspects Holland looks like a closer inspiration …Alison Brook’s contributions include the eye-catching Brass Building of 2008-10, an exclamation mark on the N side of the green … also four semi-detached houses facing Brooklands Avenue (Nos 3-6 Morland Terrace, complete 2006), innovatively planned with split-level rooms and top-lit stairs.

The is a Wikipedia entry about the development.
