Client : Private

The brief called for a number of group housing prototypes, with a mixture of high density three storey walk up units in two and three bedroom configurations, and both three and four bedroom free standing medium density units in various locations. The prototypes were developed as large scale building blocks, which could be combined to produce different scale and external space configurations, combining both high density and medium density units. The construction methodology was furthermore suggested to be of a pre manufactured nature to promote ease and speed of construction.
