This staggered cluster of six rowhouses preserves and enhances the privacy of the surrounding neighbourhood.

The building’s stepped form responds to the unusual shape of the site and was designed so every resident has a generous outlook onto the street. It served as an architectural case study to investigate how newness and tradition could together create an architecture that fits its context with quiet confidence.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
