THIS IS MY STREET!
The task of this competition was to develop a family housing typology providing units with a very personal feel that would respond to future changes in society.
Our proposal focused on how the housing unit and the street, together, form the neighbourhood identity for the resident. This resulted in a densely knit, low-rise neighbourhood for 200 families, with each single family home having a rich and flexible floor plan, a large private terrace, an intimate mews shared with neighbouring units, parking spaces at arms length, a neighbourhood square with views onto the river and a wide open river frontage. A varied mix of pedestrian, car, bike and green will create lively high quality streets, lanes, and public spaces with individual characters. Cars are moved out of sight, into the houses.
164 Single family houses, 36 Apartments, 293 parkings
