Strasbourg Drive, Beaumont Leys, Leicester, 2004—Present

 Beaumont Leys small Axis successfully bid for the redevelopment of this housing estate in Leicester which incorporated selective demolition and the construction of 134 new mixed tenure properties comprising bungalows, flats and houses, along with extensive landscaping and reconfiguring of the existing road network.

The site presented significant challenges in respect of topography and the relationship between built form and the external environment, and required careful planning in order to provide a successful cohesion of the urban environment.

Axis worked closely with Leicester City Council Housing Department and Touchstone Housing Association to develop a portfolio of house types that could be reconfigured to a variety of needs in order to suit the demographic of the area.
