  • Comment

The £10 million low-rise, high-density scheme sits just down the hill from the Ralph Erskine-designed Byker Wall.

The 6,806m² development includes a range of different housing typologies including courtyard houses, back-to-back houses, six-storey tower blocks and an adaptation of the much-loved Tyneside flat.

Each home has its own front door opening onto the street and there are no lifts, corridors or common parts.

The housing scheme’s public realm has been designed to encourage communal living with shared allotments, cycle stores and recycling areas and a central public square which overlooks the River Ouse.

The buildings were built from a timber frame and clad in brick with timber-framed windows.

The scheme was named the Supreme Winner at the 2016 Housing Design Awards.
