Castle in the Sky

Part 1 Project 2017

‘Castle in the sky’ is a response to London’s housing crisis. Identifying the failure of strategies such as decentralisation and high-rise, it proposes an alternative model: flexible ‘room-boxes’ plugged into the available space above London’s terraces. Space function is no longer fixed; it becomes a product occupants can replace and change. Alternatives for enclosure define family homes, co-housing, archive storage and public gardens, combined to create communities in the sky.
