Starter for 10

Commonweal Housing ran  an open design ideas competition seeking new ideas and proposals for a form of transitional short-term accommodation.

The purpose of the competition was to find a viable and deliverable model for demountable, reusable, short term accommodation options that can be deployed within existing buildings to provide a safe, hygienic, sanitary and affordable alternative to the streets or tents.

Our entry showed how simple, cost effective, prefabricated units could be arranged in an abandoned industrial space.

Please see the attached pdf which described and illustrates our approach.
