St Edmund's Terrace

Sprunt was appointed by The Guinness Partnership as concept designers to develop a high quality residential scheme for their “star” site in the Borough.


This tenure-blind development includes private and affordable housing on the western edge of Primrose Hill.


Despite difficult access and limited public transport which would suggest a density of 30 to 50 units per hectare (planning guideline), Sprunt’s proposal for 190 units per hectare was considered acceptable because of its design quality.  This “tour de force” was made possible  thanks to a fine mixture of modernist and traditional architecture to suit its context.
