This is a responsive and complex piece of urbanism underpinned by well chosen design strategies. Two streets are reconstructed around a raised courtyard, over parking. On Buckingham Street, Georgian neighbours are matched in scale and materials. To the side street and around the courtyard a clever range of house types based on sectional strategies optimise layout, sunshine and own-door access. The courtyard is resolved as a garden fronted by a series of villa-types in the genial optimistic language of early Modernism.
