Your overview of contemporary terraced housing (AJ 18.10.07) was hard to put down.

We like the AJ of course, but I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed an issue quite so much. Your overview of contemporary terraced housing (AJ 18.10.07) was hard to put down.

Each project, from the nonchalant to the angst-ridden, exposed concerns we too tussle with on a regular basis: porch/lobby or none; parking space, garage or none; rooms or openplan; corridors and courts; useable roofs etc. Each scheme exposed opinions about what we expect of home life now and, based on past experience, for many decades to come.

Two minor disappointments: that one of our own schemes didn’t make the cut, and that ShedKM’s Chimney Pot Park in Salford (pictured) didn’t appear. Its scheme deals with all of the above, and radically skews expectations of an existing terrace form. I do hope we see more similar overview features like this in the future.
