Preston - invited
The project concerns the development of an innovative design proposal for a social housing development in the centre of Preston, where people will aspire to live. Not only does this proposal emphasizes on design quality and energy efficiency, but also demonstrates that affordable does not equate to ordinary, and should act as an exemplar for future social housing developments in Preston and elsewhere. The experience one has by walking through the building is like walking through a small city. Each residence remains anonymous due to the complex structure of the ensemble, while contributing to the atmosphere of a neighbourhood. Our goal is to create a contemporary model of social housing that communicates with the city and responds to the people’s aspirations for innovation and quality of life. Competiton team: Ioannis Oikonomou, George Anastasiadis, Elina Perou and Xaris Tsitsikas.
