About / History

Forestfield 1967, Crawley

A unique, liveable, urban but leafy place with small squares linked by footpaths, ramps and bridges. The scheme was feted with a number of design awards and now, with Shrublands, constitutes a Conservation Area.

The Ryde 1963, Hatfield

The single-storey plan enabled the owners to choose the way they used and lived in the houses as all the accommodation was on one level and could be extended, opened up or subdivided either permanently or temporarily with sliding screens. More than 40 years on a strong sense of community still exists.

Shrublands 1963, Crawley

The layout was centered around the green and the clubroom, which was also used as a day nursery. The houses arranged around and entered from four culs de sac, contrasted strongly with the anonymous and repetitious sprawl of the surrounding, more traditional developments.

John Kennedy Lodge 1992, Islington, London

An example of innovative housing for older people with integrated management and care services in an urban context. The built solution ingeniously makes maximum use of the difficult site to the benefit of residents and carers and the townscape.

Portman Gate 1984, Marylebone, London

In the early 1980s, as government policy effectively took apart the local authority housing programme, work for private developers began to assume increasing importance. Our skill in optimising density served developers well and we were in the forefront of raising residential density in inner London.

Vauxhall Bridge Road 1996, Vauxhall, London

An example of high density housing funded with Business Enterprise Scheme funding to provide homes of all forms of tenure from private purchase to social rented, as well as shops, leisure facilities, a surgery and shared amenities on a constrained urban site.
