Parry Court, Haig Housing, Morden

8 transitional, affordable housing units for single service leavers.

From feasibility to completion

Haines Phillips Architects have a long-standing relationship with the Haig Housing Trust, having carried out a number of projects on their Morden estate to provide for the housing needs of the ex-service community.

We were appointed at feasibility stage to prepare designs for the redevelopment of a site in the south-west corner of the estate containing a vacant house and cafe and adjacent a Grade II listed Parish Hall.

The new buildings are carefully designed to tie in with the existing boundary wall conditions and follow the predominant language of details and materials in the existing and surrounding buildings in order to sit comfortably in its location.

A welcoming open courtyard layout

Our proposed layout takes the form of an open courtyard, similar, although at a much more modest scale, to existing courtyards within the estate.

The common garden area in the courtyard functions as shared amenity space for the residents of the new homes and other residents on the estate.

The houses are modest in scale and budget and designed for the specific requirements of the single ex-service personnel who will be allocated the houses, to assist them in adjusting to independent living, effectively as short term ‘move on’ accommodation.

Our post planning stage services included preparation of techni- cal production information for construction and tendering, and site stage services novated to the design and build contractor appoint- ed by HHT.

The scheme was a finalist at the Inside Housing Awards in the Best build for rent development category.


The development is located in Morden, South London.
