A co-housing scheme, near Newington Green in London

The clients shared an interest in a way of living that would allow them as a group to have more interaction with each other than was afforded by regular terraced housing, where the public sphere ends at the front door.

They sought companionship, mutual support and refuge from the alienating effects of modern life.

The six homes range from 70m² to 155m², along with a laundry, workshop, 50m² hall for parties, yoga and workspace, and communal gardens, which they would plant, on a 990m² site. The scheme as a whole is 795m².
