A high density, low rise, street-based neighbourhood forms part of a multi-site programme, densifying underused parts of Greenwich borough. Organised around three new mews streets are 29 affordable homes, corner shop and community hall.  A notched courtyard house typology positions homes close together without privacy issues, while ensuring positive overlooking of streets. The homes are built from traditional masonry with low cost, robust detailing; pale rustic brick gives a variation in tone across the elevations, with flourishes including wavy parapets, circular windows and projecting window borders. Ground floor bedrooms look into a private courtyard, and an open plan kitchen leads out through full-height glazing to a roof terrace.
