London RIBA Regional Award 2019

Peter Barber Architects for London Borough of Enfield
Contract value: £3m
GIA: 1,365m²
Cost per m²: £2,198

The architect met with aplomb this challenging brief, for 15 large socially rented units on a brownfield site. A terrace of elegant three-storey townhouses creates a handsome and striking backdrop to a busy street. Behind it lie four single-storey courtyard houses which front onto a newly created mews. The development subverts expectations of what affordable houses should look and feel like, with generosity of spirit and economy of means.
