Temple Avenue

Two exemplary houses of a simple but sophisticated contemporary design that combine architectural refinement with an excellent use of internal space. The designs are underpinned by energy-saving objectives and are based on simple rectangular plans, steep-pitched roofs and brick walls. The architect has shown how it is possible for good design to lift everyday elements into works of architectural quality.
