Civic Trust Award, Commendation

Coin Street Housing, London | Haworth Tompkins Architects

The challenge for all inner-city housing is to reconcile the civic presence demanded by the urban setting with the privacy demanded by the domestic function. In response to this the dwellings are arranged as terraces onto the streets forming an open courtyard in the centre of the site which provides a secure communal landscaped garden for the residents.
