Racing fans rejoice! Twelve Architects is planning to build 60 residences directly overlooking the famed Silverstone Circuit in England. Called “Escapade Silverstone,” these units can either be used as a short-term rental or purchased outright, should you just want to live there full-time. The community will include front-row trackside residences that all have direct views over the circuit with architecture inspired by the notion of ‘Slipstreaming,’ where a vehicle follows closely behind another and travels in its slipstream before an overtake attempt.
