Accommodating growth within the existing city
Housing Density Study
Location: London, United Kingdom
Client: Greater London Authorities
Programme: Study and policy guidelines for how to increase housing density
The report uses illustrations of hypothetical housing schemes and images of actual built examples in different character settings with different levels of public transport accessibility to discuss a wide range of relevant issues. Its objectives can be summarised as to inform the London Plan Housing SPG, guide the interpretation of “optimising” density and draw out design and management pointers for optimising density and making higher density development “fit” into different contexts.
