:The development comprises 21 pairs of two-storey houses in three rows, 20 five-person, 14 six-person and 8 four-person. There are three terraces, punctuated with a grid of walkways, built one above the other on the site’s steep slope. Grade II listed special architectural interest of this bold, modernist design of 1970 by Benson and Forsyth; the use of materials is sophisticated and the smooth-finished, white concrete contrasts with the dark-stained joinery and exposed structural-skeleton, the latter immaculately-detailed with board-marking and chamfering; one of the best estates designed by Camden Architects' Department, pioneers of low-rise, high-density housing in the 1960s and 1970s.
