We worked closely with the local council to create new homes on the Tybalds Estate that contribute to meeting local housing need whilst making best use of public land. Our approach is the urban equivalent to dental surgery adding new homes in awkward gaps, which help repair fragmented urban fabric.

Collaborating with Duggan Morris Architects & Avanti Architects we have designed 93 new homes for new and existing residents, 68 of which will be affordable, and 11 of which will be designed for residents using wheelchairs.

The design adds to the range of housing ideas that characterize the area from Georgian terraces and post war mansion blocks to modernist towers. The new homes take the form of a mews, a terrace, an apartment block and extensions.

The development aims to protect qualities of the area such as a play space, framed views of streets, and features such as the boundary wall and existing trees.
