In response to Andrew Kenyon's letter (AJ 07.06.07), please note that the residents of our New Islington scheme love their generous, bright new houses and fully understand, as Kenyon perhaps does not, that the scheme is part of an ambitious long-term masterplan.

Contrary to his assertion, the houses exceed all the standards set for this type of social housing in terms of size and performance. When the masterplan is complete, back gardens will open on to a communal garden designed by Grant Associates and front gardens will adjoin a fully landscaped pedestrian street facing a fantastic new building designed by Will Alsop. The context to which Mr Kenyon refers is simply a building site.
