PATTERN BOOK FOR NEWQUAY GROWTH AREA, CORNWALL
ADAM Architecture was commissioned by the Prince's Foundation and the Duchy of Cornwall to produce a Pattern Book for the future development of Newquay. The book is not prescriptive; rather it provides town planners, architects and builders with a useful resource of typologies and details for the design of urban space and buildings. It is intended to guide new development in a way that will provide continuity throughout the urban fabric and strengthen the built character of the town. The book suggests how urban and architectural patterns may extend into new areas and thereby reinforce the best of the existing with the new. Careful analysis of urban forms ensures that buildings of suitable character and scale are designed and built in a natural and cohesive way.
