The project comprises a development of six houses for the private rental market, occupying a former derelict yard between King Street and Ravenscourt park station. The scheme resolves a very tight site, overlooked by neighbours on all sides and adjacent to a locally listed terrace of houses.

The houses are entered from a cobbled courtyard and residents share mature communal gardens. The houses are spatially generous, with light-filled interiors and flexible layouts intended for future adaption and re-use.

The layout of the site is a sophisticated response to these constraints and is a commendable example of what can be achieved architecturally; through simple manipulation of form, the use of robust materials and the sensitive treatment of boundary conditions and landscape.

The architects and client have produced an exquisitely detailed project to a high standard of build quality both internally and externally and one which could provide a benchmark for similar developments across the city.
