Following the preparation of a detailed needs assessment, iph were engaged by the Department of Housing and Works to explore designs providing simple flexibility for combining and/ or separating adjacent houses while maintaining multiple exterior spaces for private and communal gatherings. This was achieved with the removal or addition of a small internal wall. The houses are developed as islands of territories defined by the meandering concrete platform and associated drainage swales. Site boundaries are made redundant by these devices and allocated for re-generation of native landscaping and small self managed market gardens.
