This scheme was commissioned on the back of a successful competition bid for the site, produced in close partnership with Home (South). The Local Authority
brief was to replace the existing 1960's block of bed-sits that had fallen into disrepair and ill-repute, with large family housing. The resulting scheme maximises the development potential whilst respecting the varied site constraints. It is reliant on a curved terrace that forms a continuous development frontage combined with an efficient building footprint. The ridge heights are restrained to respect the neighbouring properties with the dormer roofs carefully articulated in the cranked roof section.
