Suburban housing for the private rental market

Clusters of terraces in a shared interactive landscape balance greater density with high quality green spaces giving the development its sense of place. Key aspirations of suburban living like the wish for private gardens and individual front doors are maintained.
The use of an Open Building System enables developers to adjust to changing market and tenant’s needs in a quick and economical way. Communal stairs and access decks are arranged outside the system grid.
Tenants can access a shared online platform through which carpooling, flat swaps and re-configurations, childcare and social leisure activities are co-ordinated.
