Flexi-House is a socially sustainable typology that provides a range of flexible living, working and community spaces. The typology structures public and private relationships, creating a sequence of communal spaces that encourage community interaction. Flexi-House creates a layered fabric with streets, public spaces and shared patios at the front, a mews and neighbourhood zones at the rear.
Flexi-House can be rearranged internally to provide apartments, maisonettes, family houses, live-work, and disabled accommodation. Within its interlocking form, a range of multi-purpose amenity spaces are provided, which can be adapted by residents for home-working, storage or recreation, making an active and productive residential fabric.
A hard-working typology, Flexi-House is designed to create a mixed-use, socially sustainable neighbourhood that can adapt and evolve over time to support long-term social and economic growth.
