Cantilevered steel frame trackside residences

We are working on a masterplan modular scheme of 47 steel frame plus traditional construction buildings at Silverstone Racing Circuit, on a site north of Becketts Corner. Our appointment covers Stage 3 to completion.

Accommodation includes three types of high specification residences — trackside, dual aspect and countryside — plus a two-storey clubhouse with roof terrace and leisure facilities. Many of the 46 residential buildings can be subdivided, yielding a maximum of 60 units.

Three-storey trackside residences are already under construction, each comprising a reinforced concrete garage topped by cantilevered braced-box steel frames for the living quarters and terraces. The top floor boxes are skewed at an angle from the ones below, evoking the power of one racing car slipstreaming another into an overtake. Deep trusses support the floors between garage and columns, and the stacked box aesthetic is achieved by very thin floor zones within the structure.

The two-storey dual aspect residences are masonry construction with roof terraces and separate garages. The single-storey countryside houses are also masonry construction, with separate car ports.

The clubhouse, designed for people staying at the complex, includes a swimming pool, leisure facilities and hospitality spaces. Its cantilevered roof terrace provides fantastic views of the racing action.

The first trackside residences should be ready for the 2023 Formula 1 British Grand Prix.
