Back-to-Back I 

The back-to-back terrace house was a much maligned product of the Industrial Revolution. As its name states, the real walls were shared and this meant that light could only come from one direction and that there was no cross-ventilation. 

The intention of this proposal 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 centre space that is more than a light well but less than a courtyard. 

Additional windows can be placed on external walls wherever the site layout and boundary conditions permit. Views along the entire length of the house make it seem larger than it is.
