This is much more interesting.  With the quasi mansard roofline, projecting parapets and dormers the planners were clearly persuaded it matches its neighbours.  Well sort of, but this little development clearly has its own agenda.  I like the fact the materials and detail make no effort to reflect the adjacent houses: the second hand stock brickwork, sooted white-washed and all, the simple treatment of the first floor windows, and those crazy steep dormers all work reasonably well creating an interestingly articulated facade.  Note the barely perceptible off-street parking .  Not that outstanding a development but quite a good try.
