Donnybrook Housing

Peter Barber Architects
location London
function housing
contributed by Cordula_Zeidler

Peter Barber has with immense precision hit a very sensitive spot - he is by many seen as an architectural saviour, showing the way out of a major housing crisis in London. Donnybrook comes at a time when the government is desperate to build quick and cheap. It shows with easy elegance that there is a solution; the project is incredibly dense yet it has a charmingly intimate character and is irresistably optimistic. Barber has given everybody a private outdoors, framed by his modernist inspired solid volumes. Those living on the ground floor have a courtyard behind the house, while the maisonettes above are given a large terrace. There are some one-off solutions for buildings at the edges of the development, with a wedge-shaped one-bedroom house on a very slim plan, some higher volumes on the main road and houses with generously glazed façades overlooking the square. Donnybrook achieves a lot, creating an environment where community seems possible and where living can be fun.
