Merton Rise Basingstoke is on the eastern edge of a greenfield site, the £7m scheme provides 79 family homes built by Miller Homes (Southern). The housing is arranged in two parcels facing out towards the spine road, with secure courtyards to the rear providing access to car parking and garages. Feature buildings mark the intersection between principal routes, with variations in house types enhanced through a palette of corner windows, located so as to maximise views. A vibrant skyline is created using monopitch roofs.
In 2009, four Low and Zero Carbon Homes were unveiled as part of the development. They were developed to meet Levels 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, incorporating a range of technologies to reduce water consumption, energy use, C02 emissions, waste and pollution.
