The scheme proposes five two-bedroom 'Lifetime Homes' on a former garage site in Hollingbury, a 1940s public housing estate on Brighton's northern edge.
The houses are arranged around a shared yard and each has its own courtyard, accessed either via a garden gate to the main yard or via glazed doors into living rooms. The white-brick, bow-fronted houses are a hybrid of the council houses that surround the site and Brighton's Regency terraces.
The project navigates complex topography and rights of way, including maintaining access to eight existing private garages surrounding the site, whilst preserving the privacy of neighbouring residents.
