The site is located at the centre of a residential block in North London, surrounded by 23 party walls and accessed via a long narrow passageway. The plans are based on an abstraction of the existing triangular geometry: two houses, each with their own garden, and a shared communal courtyard emerged out of a pin-wheel fractal pattern. The sloping roofs of the houses will be planted according to the same geometry, to be designed together with landscape architect <a href="http://www.arabellalennoxboyd.com/splash/splash.html" target="_blank">Arabella Lennox-Boyd</a>.</p>
