Jury’s statement
This terraced house project is a fine example of densification in a built environment. The building volumes fit comfortably on the edge of the nature reserve. Here the interior rooms provide a conduit between nature and the staggered streetscape.
The project has been built up carefully from the road. Pre-fabricated surface units ensured efficient and considerate construction, with respect for the nature reserve. The road remains the central artery for the residents, lined with private front gardens. The scale and position of the homes is wonderfully tailored to the surroundings. Unifying material and colour choices give the terrace its own, unique identity.
The intricate and sympathetic interior layout combines with the apparently simple volumes to create a coherent feel. The staggering of the volumes establishes individuality within the terrace, with rooflights and generous glazing in the façade allowing light to flood in. The slats lining the façades unite the volumes and are like a membrane that both protects and opens up. The rooms inside have a superb layout that ensures a good living environment.
