SPACE TO GROW: RIBA COMPETITION
@ E2 Architecture, 2013
LOCATION: THEORETICAL SITE, UK
Completed at E2 Architecture, Space to Grow was our response to an open competition brief launched by Wates Giving and in collaboration with the RIBA entitled ''Housing for a Private Rental Market''. The competition aimed to explore the growing demand for specifically designed privately rented suburban neighbourhood developments.
The concept ‘Space to Grow’ applied at all scales across a 10 hector suburban site, from the large array of interconnected community spaces and pedestrian focused ‘homezones’ to the multi-functional nature of the residential units themselves. The focus was to provide a community for life, where homes remain functional through changing demands and diverse neighbourhoods have the accommodation and amenities available to facilitate (and therefore maintain) families over generations. The result is a sustainable community dynamic, sustainable infrastructure and affordable rental property of exceptional quality.

This body of work was completed at E2 Architecture. Working in a design team, personal responsibilies were research, design development, prodction of all imagery and completion of the final presentation package.
