 Back-to-Back 1 The back-to-back terrace house was a much maligned product of the Industrial Revolution. As its name states, the rear walls were often shared and this meant light from one direction and no cross-ventilation. With this project, the object was to develop a house module that could be repeated and/or mirrored and/or rotated to fit an arbitrarily odd-shaped site. All habitable rooms have windows facing the central space that is more than a light-well but still less than a courtyard. Additional windows can be placed on external walls wherever the the site layout and boundary conditions permit. Views along the entire length of the house make it seem larger than it is.
