The project offers a vision of a residential quarter with a strong, identifiable and consistent character. The model merges the urban grain of the early Victorian streets and the compact efficiency and density of the Victorian mansion block. The project explores the virtues of relatively narrow north-south streets; and the consequent benefits of east-west facing dual aspect apartments within five and six storey mansion block terraces. This public-realm led masterplan “rolls out” a repeating pattern of buildings, streets and gardens. The scheme integrates an existing residential tower and creates 400 new mixed tenure homes. The architecture brings people into contact with one another through the shared use of entranceways, gardens, staircases and galleries.
