About this blog

Posted June 2007

This is a personal website about the design and layout of residential houses and flats in the UK - in particular, their shape, size and proportion. These aspects of a home can’t be easily changed once a house or flat has been built and yet they are critical to their success as pleasant, comfortable living spaces.

My interest in residential architecture has been spurred by my own experience of living in a terraced house and the attendant problems that can arise from poorly designed homes (like neighbouring noise and lack of privacy). I'm not an architect but just someone with a keen interest in architecture and housing in particular.
