The Distinctively Local guide - a collaboration between Proctor & Mathews, Pollard Thomas Edwards, PRP and HTA Design - responds directly to the government's Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission, and the recent challenge to architects to "build the homes the next generation deserves". Focusing on suburban and rural housing, the report outlines how an exploration of local and regional characteristics such as a distinct topography, vernacular building forms and the texture and grain of surrounding settlements can assist in creating a strong identity for new residential neighbourhoods.
