Discover inspirational terraced housing architecture

These terraced housing examples show what’s possible when modern architecture re-envisages the built environment

Since the 17th Century, terraced housing has been an iconic residential architecture style in the UK. Ranging from luxurious Georgian townhouses to modest Victorian two-up-two-downs designed for factory workers, across Britain’s towns and cities you can see examples of how terraced houses were used to maximise space where housing was in high demand.

The architectural style remains highly popular in urban and suburban areas, but modern architects are evolving the classic design and reimagining what’s possible when working in a terrace. Discover the award-winning Timekeeper’s Square, which revitalised Salford’s historic city centre with modern townhouses. See how architects developed terraced housing in Gosport that puts sustainability at the heart of its design, or how Seven Acres centres 128 newly-constructed homes around a green communal space for families to thrive.
