The challenge in this project was to deliver the qualities of large, single-family homes in a tough inner city environment. Our mixed-use residential building recasts the terraced row - a combination of apartments and a 21st Century reinterpretation of the archetypal British terrace house typology - in a form that best responds to the intensity of its urban surroundings. The new homes provide generous and secure outdoor amenity and a flexible ground floor that can accommodate other uses in the future.
The different types of living spaces are located at different levels within each home so that the extended family and children can enjoy both privacy and family gatherings when necessary. The result is a new concept of family urban living in a tough inner city environment.
