Just what is going on here?   The scale and proportion of the new pair of houses is execrable in the extreme.  I suppose you can work out what the developer was trying to do; squeeze three habitable stories into two, but in doing so has introduced a totally confusing sense of proportion and then compounded it by weak and feeble detailing.  Note the simple assurance of the original houses on the right. The 1950s development on the left at least has no pretensions.  We shouldn't be doing stuff like this today.
