The 16-home terrace takes its cue from the rhythm and stepping of its neighbouring Victorian predecessors. The project reimagines the terrace with private amenity at the ground and upper floors and dual-aspect rooms. Clever arrangement of homes around courtyards maximises daylight within. In eight of the homes a rooflight above the stairs floods them with light. High-quality materials complement the context and are hard-wearing and durable. The dwellings have been constructed using traditional methods and all look robust and sturdy. This result is generous, light-filled family homes that set the benchmark very high for developments in the area.
