- Royal Borough of Greenwich
- Project Cost
Greenwich has identified an acute need for affordable, single storey dwellings for people over 60 years of age and the Council has been granted funding to construct 35 new dwellings on eight small sites across the borough.
A prototype single storey house has been developed that can be arranged in alternative layouts on different sites. A monopitch roof with extensive glazing provides a good quality of height, space and natural light regardless of orientation. The additional height provided by this roof form allows the houses to sit comfortably within urban contexts and provides a generous double height space internally.
