As society grapples with multivalent challenges of housing supply, George’s Place offers a timely exemplar of how housing should be. It exhibits the importance of considering the simple rudiments of good housing – and getting them right: from density to connectivity; from the collective streetscape to individual thresholds; from timeless proportionality to material selection; and of choosing moments of human generosity over dogmatic regulatory compliances. The overall result is an elegant urban street that you would love to live in. The project depicts a story of successful cooperation between public and private endeavours in design and construction in pursuit of shared excellence and inspires a basis for approaching larger scaled housing.
