DESIGNS ON KING'S CROSS

Stephen Witherford, William Mann, Ben Green

What does it mean to move from an active metropolitan public space to a 'homezone' in the space of 300m? We proposed a single urban block inected to characterise the streets and gardens around. An eight-storey mansion block forms the northern edge; a gallery-access block fronts to the park; stacked maisonettes form a four-storey southern edge, maximising sunlight to the courts; towers at opposite corners engage with neighbouring high-rises.

The frontage to the park accommodates mix; the courts are shared between communal and private gardens; the maisonettes, perforated with terraces, support a domestic scale and sociability on the interior streets.
