Sarah Wigglesworth Architects
Umpire View is a new development of 27 affordable homes in Harrow for Notting Hill Housing by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects. The development provides a mix of new houses and flats, while offering a new take on the suburban semi and a blueprint for low-cost, good quality suburban housing. A simple design is expressed through a pared-back materials palette and subtle architectural gestures, that nevertheless bring elegance to the fringe of an important open green space near Harrow town centre.
Umpire View responds to its context by a simple interpretation of the predominant red brick and lighter harling/render to create distinctive entrances to the buildings. The idea of the ‘half house’ has been explored through the pairing of entrances as the corners, bisected by pathways leading to rear gardens.
