This group of four houses replaces a run-down commercial yard on an otherwise attractive street of Victorian houses.  The new buildings are not showy but are beautifully laid out and detailed, using forms and materials that echo those of the neighbouring buildings.  The arrangement of the volumes and the effortless disposition of sloping roofs are both simple and varied.   It may seem obvious enough to mimic existing buildings, but considerable skill and experience are required, first to design such modestly elegant houses and arrange them so naturally – and then to get them beautifully built.  These houses provide a handsome standard for the design and construction of middle-market houses in an established suburban neighbourhood.
