Notes on Keelson 8a Hills Avenue Cambridge

Pevsner writes in Cambridgeshire (2014) p. 331:

A delightful single-storey house of 1960-1 by the Danish architect Erik Sorenson, for Olga Kennard and her husband. Like so many bespoke post-war houses it has a defensive aspect to the street. A standard module determines the plan, which with the use of slende dark-brown timbering gives a fortuitously Japanese effect. The living room lies between an inner turfed courtyard and the more spacious back garden. Entrance wing and living-room wing are connected by bedrooms and a book-lined gallery.
