An essential design
guide for architects and others interested in innovative housing typologies

Radical Housing
explores the planning, technical, financial, health-based and social background
for developing multi-generational homes and co-living. Abundantly illustrated
with case studies and plans from projects across the UK and abroad, this book aims
to inform and inspire the delivery of alternative approaches to affordable and
flexible housing, and is an essential text for architecture practitioners,
students, and community groups.

Offers inspiration and
innovative ideas for customer-led housing and deliverable solutions from
the UK and abroad.
Practical focus,
particularly around deliverability, giving readers an understanding of the
planning and legislative framework, and helping them to negotiating a
speedier path through the process of obtaining consents
Demonstrates how alternative
housing models can help to deliver the number of affordable homes needed,
exploring finance and land availability.
Offers a sustainable vision
of the future, since new homes must be flexible and adaptable over time so
they can meet the changing needs of families and communities.
Outlines the social benefits
to society beyond the provision of homes for those in need and
demonstrates through case studies that it is also important to establish
supportive, caring and stimulating environments for people to
thrive.
