The Triangle is a pioneering, low-energy, new housing development in Swindon commissioned by Hab Oakus - a joint venture between Kevin McCloud’s HAB development company and housing group Green Square.
The 42 homes are a contemporary interpretation of Swindon’s mid-Victorian railway cottages – flexible, affordable and efficient to build and manage – using sustainable materials and set in a beautiful landscape.
The project is part of a wider strategy to introduce One Planet Living principles, developed by the World Wildlife Fund and BioRegional, to Swindon. The Homes and Communities Agency has contributed funding.
