Design Code, Design Review
Define produced the Design Code for Alkerden which is now being used to develop detailed proposals that are being delivered at the site. Our approach stays true to ensuring delivering the ambitions for Alkerden as part of the wider Ebbsfleet Garden City and as the setting for healthy and enriched everyday lives.
Character is an important consideration of the Design Code. We worked hard with those that matter including local residents and Ebbsfleet Development Corporation to establish what elements of character were important and the most appropriate means to address the overall narrative. In certain locations within Alkerden, local cultural heritage is applicable to assist in guiding development decisions (e.g. materials and building forms); in other instances, a bold, direct and deliberate endeavour to make 21 Century design decisions is taken.
