Winning Design for Sheltered Housing scheme in Primrose Hill
The winning entry in a limited competition sponsored by a local trust, this 28-flat new-build sheltered accommodation development occupies a key corner location on a tight urban site.
Accommodation is arranged symmetrically on four floors, with common rooms distributed through the floors rather than being confined to the ground floor.
The flats are arranged towards the outer public perimeter of the site, forming a quiet inner communal garden area.
To encourage residents to circulate, communal spaces are distributed throughout the building, reducing the potential institutional atmosphere
The project was not built due to the inability of the site owner to deliver the site.
