Twenty-Nine Architecture obtained planning permission for the erection of a terrace of three dwellings following the demolition of an existing property along this historic street in Cambridge.

The units have been perceived to address the character of the street and junction to provide a positive built form on this corner. The proposed design takes inspiration from the form and scale of the surrounding buildings to provide a proposals that aligns with its context. Most notably, the dwellings are a contemporary approach on a Victorian dwelling and make reference to the terrace housing along the street.

The front elevation has been designed to be sympathetic to the neighbouring properties with its façade reflecting the simple style of the Victorian houses with stone detailing. This association is continued in the proposed palette of materials; buff brick under zinc pitched roofs.

The aim has been to give consistent character within the proposal site, which reflects the repetition of typologies found elsewhere in the area, and provide a strong visual connections with the street.
