“Every website has its view, topography and barely completely different environmental circumstances, so every of the household of homes that we designed wanted to have its personal kind, form and plan,” the Saunders Structure staff mentioned concerning the general design scheme of the neighbourhood.

“We by no means let kind be the driving power of our designs, however finally every home grew to become a letter, just like the Y Home, and we went with that idea.”
