Carleton Road,1968-1972

This high density, low rise development is in the form of a street  lined with 90 terraced houses. Original communal gardens were later divided into individual private ones. This was the first new street in London since  World War II.

 

At the end of the Carleton Road there is a building of 90 flats, designed together with the family houses, to accomodate couples and single people. It sits in a walled garden away from the families.
