Homestead Lane, Welwyn Garden City

Built on the former site of a Dairy Crest distribution centre, these 12 houses have been designed to respect the heritage of the garden city, whilst representing the time in which they are built. Crisp pitched roofs and details contrast with textured materials and planting, creating something modern and different, yet familiar in its language and form. The presence of cars on the street is kept to a minimum and surfaces become ambiguous to create a pedestrian-oriented space.
