With British precedents and working-class origins, the terrace house has a story of remarkable resilience.

Today it is highly sought after for its nostalgic charm and inner-city locale. A new generation of home owners is making a mark by working with architects and designers to reimagine the terrace house for a twenty-first-century lifestyle.

From subtle refinements to bold geometric forms, alterations and additions are often hidden from the street creating a sense of intrigue about what lies behind, above or beyond the romantic facade. This collection of homes celebrates the incredible history and enduring appeal of these well-loved buildings.
