The design of Aikin Terrace, on a corner site, picks up on the surrounding brick terraces while creating a strong character of its own. Living space is at the rear of the  3.5m wide homes and the kitchen at the front, ambiguously separated from porch and lobby by an openable glazed screen, creating a sense of both social aspiration and conviviality. Details and material juxtapositions further abstract the language of the terrace; the bay and porch are made special by a rich brown porcelain tile and a red brick. Material choices serve to intensify the development as a special place that is opulent but also robust and urbane.
