RIBA Stirling shortlist 2013 – Newhall Be



Alison Brooks of Alison Brooks Architects explains the dichotomy of a masterplan that dictated a fairly traditional street layout with green, shared spaces and surfaces with the challenge of incorporating a Dutch-style model of higher-density courtyard living on small footprints. The mark of success for Brooks is the enthusiasm with which residents have embraced the contemporary ethos of the project by decorating in bright modern styles.
