Children’s Nursery at North Residences

University of Cambridge

I would like to congratulate Cambridge University on this imaginative and forward-looking development.

Anne Campbell MP 

Masterplan
MJP designed the masterplan for the University of Cambridge’s expansion at West Cambridge, on a 66ha site. “Franklin Court” is one of the residential developments we were commissioned to design within the masterplan.

The Residences and nursery
There are 62 two and three-bedroom flats for university staff and post-doctorate students, and a nursery for 84 children.

Site planning
MJP designed the development to create three south facing garden courts. They provide a green landscaped outlook for the residences and a secluded garden for the nursery at the centre of the scheme.

Integrated furniture
Imaginative use of the built-in furniture and colour create a highly stimulating and attractive environment for children.
