With Nos 23-41 (odd) and 69-79 (odd)(qv), a pioneering group of single storey patio houses, the first of a series of remarkable schemes by this practice. The concept of narrow frontage single storey houses with a series of linked patios was influenced by Danish examples and by work at the Ministry of Housing and Local Government Research and Development Group, led by A Cleeve Barr and Oliver Cox, where both Randall and Parkes were working. The Ryde introduced a 2-bay plan under which numerous variations could be generated giving from one to four bedrooms and one or more internal patios to bring light and air into the centre of the dwellings. Designed for and built by the Cockaigne Housing Group, created by Michael Baily, on a site allocated by Hatfield Development Corporation. The scheme won an Architectural Design Project Award in 1964.
