The Triangle is a high-quality sustainable 42-home development from Haboakus - the partnership between Kevin McCloud's company Hab and housing group GreenSquare.
This development was completed in 2011.
The Triangle is located off Northern Road in Swindon and comprises 16 two-bed houses, 13 three-bed houses, 7 four-bed houses, 4 one-bed apartments, and 2 two-bed apartments. There are homes for Intermediate Rent and Rent To Homebuy - and homes for affordable rent to local people registered with Swindon Borough Council.
The award-winning designs, by Glenn Howells Architects with landscape architects Studio Engleback, are informed by Haboakus' fundamental principles - a strong sense of community, a belief in the importance of public space, respect for cyclists and pedestrians, and a commitment to sustainable lifestyles and outstanding contextual design. The project was submitted for planning and approved by Swindon Borough Council in October 2009, and work commenced at the beginning of May 2010; residents began moving into the new homes at the end of June 2011.
