Shortlisted for Sunday Times British Homes Award

Shortlisted for Sunday Times British Homes Award

We are delighted to be one of four shortlisted practices in The Sunday Times British Homes Awards.

Challenged with designing a new prototype¬†for the terraced house in the UK, to assist the national housing crisis, our response was “PICK & MIX”.

Our philosophy that “Everyone is different, so why should our homes be the same?” saw the development of a grid-like unit with a central staircase and a glazed roof above, from which light could penetrate an efficient deep, yet narrow frontage plan. Using this as a constant fix, everything is flexible and can change around it.

A young family might “PICK” a four storey option with a granny flat, while¬†retirees could “MIX” and choose two storeys with a large roof garden, while an entrepreneur could “MIX” again and use a ground floor as a workspace.

The whole development sees private outdoor space on the roof instead of a rear garden to enable all of the external space at ground level to be shared communal space which can host a range of diverse community needs.
