Agenda 21 Architects has won planning permission for around 3200m2 of large houses in the Highbury area of North London. It is to build a total of 14 houses in three different blocks in the area, including this terraced row of seven contemporary buildings along Calabria Road in the borough. Islington Council here considered the contemporary design approach preferable to mimicry of the existing buildings. The others - four, five and seven bedroomed properties, are close to Highbury Fields. The scheme, for Furlong Homes, will be built in around a year.
