DESIGNS ON KING'S CROSS

Alex Mowat, Diana Cochrane, Nathanaelle Bues-Contillon EXPLODING THE BLOCK The masterplan's block is exploded into four domestic-scaled blocks with a staggered street through the centre.

FOUR PERSONALITIES NOT ONE Each of the four blocks could be designed by a different architect to create diversity.

SOMEWHERE SAFE AND QUIET TO PLAY A central plateau is carved out at fourth oor level, creating communal gardens to supplement individual green spaces. The buildings are orientated to exploit long views, make corners, maximise use of daylight and value for corner ats.

ALL MOD CONS Cross ventilation, solar thermal heating, high thermal mass, double-aspect flats, exible interiors, terraces and a variety of at types are provided, because one size doesn't fit all!
