Hill Homes’ 100% affordable scheme in the conservation area of Highgate, north London provides 40 extra care flats in a beautiful sylvan setting. It was designed prior to the HAPPI report in 2009, yet displays many of its recommendations, demonstrating PRP’s influence in high quality design for older people. In fact, Housing Design Award Judges said Trees ‘‘sets the benchmark for all housing for older people in the UK’’ and Housebuilder Awards Judges described it as ‘‘the best of its kind in Europe”.

The layout is configured to promote natural light, whilst generous balconies sit almost in the branches of the trees themselves.
