More misses than hits with problem homes

  • Comment

While admiring the very good intentions of the 'Hit and Miss' housing illustrated in Austin Williams' article (AJ 26.7.01), the disadvantages, I'm afraid, more than outweigh the advantages.

OK - it does away with the awful 'back and front' concept normally associated with terraced housing and provides living areas - cleverly isolated roof terraces - which give privacy. But it completely misses one aspect - hit and miss for sure!

The entrances, stairs, kitchens and stores are useless narrow passages. And as for the glass floors - well, I ask you!
