21ST CENTURY LIVING

Quality of life is woven into the fabric of Athena and Eddington.  Each decision by its architects has been made with well-being of people and their environment in mind, to shape an enduring sustainable neighbourhood and the distinctive character of a place to call home.

CHARACTER

From the historic streetscape of Cambridge comes inspiration for Athena’s elegant and distinctive identity. Consciously evoking the character and charm of today’s Cambridge, Eddington’s engaging pattern of avenues and streets and Athena’s diversity of homes, from villas and townhouses to mews and apartments, have been carefully designed to conjure the multi-layered, evolved sense of place that is the product of centuries of growth and renewal. Athena homes will reflect its heritage in other ways: signature buff brick for a strong local Cambridge identity, rich landscaping, pedestrian-friendly roads, animated familiar architectural features, bay and corner windows, fan-shaped dormers, and balconies that surprise and delight. Even Athena’s house numbers, carefully inscribed into the facade of each house, points the way to an enduring neighbourhood. The architecture of Cambridge has been shaped over centuries. Athena’s homes, streetscape, and landscape draw on that rich heritage to evoke the city’s mellow patina in a contemporary neighbourhood designed for convenient living, learning and working, today and in the future.

LIGHT & SPACE

Athena homes are light-filled and distinctive, designed with high ceilings and flexible living spaces for all stages of family life. Sunny garden rooms with spaces for living, entertaining or even home working means our homes can embrace growing families. Rooms that reach to courtyard gardens, terraces or balconies, or apartments with full-height windows and recessed balconies all bring the outside closer make the most of the light and space. Athena homes offer spacious and light-filled flexible spaces to suit 21st century living.

CONTEMPORARY

Athena homes have been crafted, considered and are contemporary in design, with quality in all the details. Designed in collaboration with two renowned architectural practices, Pollard Thomas Edwards and Alison Brooks Architects, Athena is being built with familiar materials and textures. Articulated roofs, stone detailing, buff brick and bronze cladding evoke a Cambridge streetscape. Inside, calm, clean lines and rooms with just the right palette of materials define our homes at Athena. All with built–in quality and well-crafted contemporary design, from well-sprung door handles to engineered wood floors in the houses and penthouse apartments. Style and efficiency in the bespoke Athena kitchen has been well thought out too and includes integrated Siemens and Bosch appliances. Lasting elegance in the bathroom with quality Duravit and Hansgrohe fittings and the addition of a heated towel rail add a touch of comfort.
