New Ideas for Housing London

Useful Studio have submitted their entry to NLA’s competition ‘New Ideas for Housing London’. We put forward the idea for the Neighbourhood Nesting Trust (NNT), a philanthropic organisation that provides a network of Neighbourhood Nests, a new typology designed to offer affordable, secure rental accommodation for working Londoners on low-average incomes, with the added opportunity for an improved quality of life and stronger communities.

NNT recognises that many London homes provide only the spaces we need; space to sleep, eat, wash, but are missing spaces we want, space to play, create, gather – spaces vital to an engaging, rich and productive life.

Neighbourhood Nests proposes a spatial strategy that optimises individual layouts in order to provide the missing spaces as shared facilities, enabling an improved quality of life.
