These terraces were designed by Jeremy and Fenella Dixon and built between 1977 and 1979. From the outset the scheme was recognised as an innovative reinterpretation of terraced housing. With its multicoloured brick elevations and lower ground floors set behind front areas and boundary walls, the houses echo the designs of their 19th-century neighbours. It is a successful example of postmodernist architecture engaging with urban and historical context and drawing in modern as well as historical motifs.
