The stepped terraced house is a type of building that meets modern housing requirements: it is economical and offers ample living space with the comfort of terrace and garden. Rising to popularity with the advent of new social movements they were forgotten and even disqualified as eyesores. Yet the enduring satisfaction of residents and ecological advantages make terraced housing as attractive as ever. This book chronicles these iconic buildings and what we can learn from them.
