Hosuing as forest glade

Joseph led the design team for this competition entry whilst working at award-winning architects Jestico + Whiles. The brief required the design of a mixed tenure housing scheme within a beautiful woodland site. The desgin response focussed on nestling homes amongst the trees and creating a glade at the centre to act as the social heart of the development for play and leisure for the local residents.

The different typologies of housing blocks and homes were arranged to reducte the loss of trees with a new landscape strategy that brought in new biodiversity onto spaces that used to function as a car park.
