Architects’ Journal Newhall Be

“Newhall Be represents a departure from the design associated with house building. The 84-house scheme is an intelligent rethinking of suburban housing. The innovation of terraced patio houses enabled higher density on the site. The whole is an efficient mix of new and familiar house typologies united by a strong geometric and material consistency, inspired by the sculptural roof forms and simple materials of traditional Essex barns. On a tight budget this project delivers houses that are a joy to live in, designed with intelligence and imagination.”

In a major success for new housing in London, a regeneration masterplan for the Dollis Valley Estate Regeneration has achieved unanimous planning consent from London Borough of Barnet. The 631 dwelling masterplan was led by Alison Brooks Architects for client Countryside Properties in partnership with L&Q, with landscape design by HTA.

As part of a hybrid application, detailed consent was also granted for the 108 homes by both architects forming the project’s first phase.

The regeneration scheme will be built in five phases over seven years, with work starting on site in autumn 2013.

Grand Designs Lens House

“Brooks completely remodelled the house interior, as well as designing two extensions: one on the side, for the owners’ photo agency business, and the other on the upper-ground floor for the living room, projecting out like a lens to frame views of a majestic walnut tree in the garden.”

Architectural Review Newhall Be

The public sector points to Newhall as an exemplar for future developments, yet really its success has been dependent on the long-term planning allowed by private patronage. Having completed its latest phase, architect Alison brooks is on a mission to champion the importance of design innovation in adding value to housing.” Isabel Allen

This Issue sees the conclusion of The Big Rethink, the AR’s campaign to articulate a new vision of the potential of architecture and how it can re-engage more resonantly with wider social and human concerns. Underscoring the series has been the question ‘How do we want to live?’, and in this final chapter Peter Buchanan addresses this more explicitly in his proposal for a prototypical neighbourhood that encompasses and elaborates on many of the ideas discussed in the series.
