Kevin McCloud’s First HAB Housing Scheme Launched – and Dissappoints

Press Launch for the first scheme in Kevin McCloud’s Hab commerical housing project.

Very underwhelming – like grey cottages in a forlorn head of the valleys village.

The street frontage neither achieves a front garden of a clear urban street edge, the fenestration lacks all balance and composition, and reminds you of a 1940s prefab, the colour pallet is a wet afternoon in Greenock, the use of materials is clodding, and the front bike racks are simply impractical- insecure and backbreaking; and as for the revetments – this isn’t the Baghdad Green Zone; the front doors invite a burglars sledgehammer. Back to the drawing board Kevin for such an ‘obviously bad’ scheme.  (lesson to Swindon and all DM planners not to be star struck).
