Large Scale Housing Development (above):
The site is in Chatham, Kent and measures approximately 150 x 80m. It is currently
occupied by 40 garages, most of which are derelict and have been broken into and
some have evidence of drug use. The rest of the site is mainly wasteland with the
occasional mature tree. Our intention is to develop the land into a mixed residential
community around an existing church and doctors’ surgery. Accommodation will include
first time buyers’ flats, family homes and retirement accommodation. We are also
looking at reinstating an old footpath through the site and creating a community
park centred on the existing mature trees for use by the new and existing community.
Micro Scale Conceptual House (left):
A personal project I set myself, to design a house over a standard single garage,
to retain the parking space and to comply with building regulations.
The construction is all prefabricated timber frame. Each floor unit can be built
in a factory and carried to site on the back of a truck. Thus once the foundations
are built it can be finished very quickly. Along with the prefabrication, built in
solar panels and a wind turbine give the building a low carbon footprint as well
as a very small physical footprint.
It can be built in individual house or terraces on new sites or replacing existing
rows of unsightly 1960’s garages. If anyone reading this likes the look of it let
me know and we can develop it further to fit a specific site.
