At Kiln Place, Peter Barber Architects shows how local authorities can provide sensitive new high-density public housing without the demolition of existing homes. Taking on the least desirable parts of a Kentish Town estate – a parking lot, a disused plant room, a bin store – it has delivered 15 family homes that create obvious benefits not only for their occupants but for other residents too. The roof of one creates a terrace for an existing flat; another home improves access to a neighbouring block and shared green space. Homes are designed to high energy standards, with a ‘fabric first’ approach, and are intricately planned to deal with unusual site constraints. Setbacks, soft corners and playful fenestration are full of personality and have a subtly humanising effect on the modernist estate.
