Lining the railway leading into Cambridge, bptw partnership’s development, Magna, comprises 95 high-quality units on a site that was once home to Rattee & Kett stone masons – an icon of local craftsmanship. The scheme celebrates a collaborative approach to the site’s heritage, resulting in a development which can be enjoyed by both new residents and the existing community.The six storey apartment pavilions buffer the railway noise, but step down towards the townhouses, engaging in a familiar visual dialogue. Each house features a private garden that connects to a communal green at the centre of the scheme, enhancing accessibility to create an enjoyable living environment for all.
