Homes for the Future (223)

223 - Delivering variety in urban blocks

A development of 300 new homes, comprising ten residential blocks designed by a number of prominent architects. Homes for the Future is an exciting demonstration project that shows how a variety of modern forms and styles can be designed as a coherent whole when perimeter blocks are used as structuring devices and certain homogeneity of materials is applied. This was achieved by adhering to a development and design brief that clearly specified building types, the hierarchy of spaces and the urban design principles.
