Designed to cater for a ‘co-housing’ lifestyle (the first in London), these six houses encourage sustainable living, sharing certain facilities such as a communal hall, workshop and laundry, and certain activities such as gardening. External space is maximised, with a court at the heart of the site, beneath which the communal facilities are located and around which the six houses are laid out. The four three-storey houses are clad in untreated vertical timber boards, with both two-storey houses in brick. The proposal was granted planning permission in March 2012 and completed in 2014. Since then, it has won the following awards, • Winner, Housing Design Awards, Custom Build, 2015 • Commended, Civic Trust Awards, 2015 • Winner, Daily Telegraph Homebuilding & Renovation Award, Best Custom Build Project, 2014 • Commended, Blueprint Awards, Best Non-Public Project, 2014
