Drawn in pencil and watercolour, this work documents the different types of terrace houses in an inner-town suburb. Exhibited at Stockport Art Gallery 2022.

Two-storey terrace houses are the defining building type of Edgeley, their fronts an opportunity for
both building standardization and decorative display. These façades also define the street, providing
enclosure, security and urbanity. As speculative housing, one might expect repetition, but at least 84
varieties exist in the study area North of Castle Street, SK3.
