A House and a Half - Competition

A contemporary interpretation of the Georgian townhouse.

We have looked to create a new townhouse by adjusting the classic Georgian Townhouse. The classic version still serves us well. It is tall, generous, adaptable and forms clear streets and town squares. Our new version is even more flexible, uses modern methods of construction and splits the infrastructure costs of services connections by pairing houses.


We developed layouts for both 2, 3 and 4 storey options to give flexibility and efficiency. Ground floors can contain garages, work rooms or be converted to level access self contained flats. Materials are durable and different brickwork colours and styles can match local areas in the same way as the Georgian classic. Insulation and energy efficiency vastly out perform the original.

These designs give people new homes that are light, generous and flexible. They give new home owners an improved standard of comfort and environmental responsibility.
