We recently developed a client's guide to the design process for a project in Bristol where 13 families are seeking to undertake a collective custom build, or 'Co-Build' project together! It is an amazing prospect, and an exciting answer to our housing problems. Having worked on a variety of Cohousing, Community-led, and Community Land Trust housing projects we understand that getting the right design process is just as important, if not more so than the design product. For the uninitiated the design process can seem both exciting, and confusing and complex. We always seek to explain the process in simple terms, and 'design' the meetings and engagement process as well as the building itself! This process of deep collaboration and facilitation is what we seek to provide for client groups.
