- # Social
In today’s climate, people find themselves isolated from society due to many factors including money, age & immigration patterns. With pressure on societies to deliver 100,000’s of new homes to tackle the housing crisis, can we pre-empt and provoke a new method of design which shapes constantly evolving communities?
Taking forward our shortlisted entry ‘Growhouse’ for the NACSBA ‘Self Build on a Shoestring’ competition, we want to establish a design toolkit that evolves the ideas of co-sharing and integration to create both transient and permanent communities.
Growhouse communities will develop over time, creating platforms which assist with integration and support of people & families in society. Utilising sustainable & new materials including mycelium insulation, we can provide forward thinking, low cost design solutions.
With communities growing at an unprecedented scale, help us showcase these new co-sharing environments which put the residents at the forefront of design.
