We are having a very productive final day. All housing typology groups have finally concluded their final schemes , and putting together all the work produced during the two weeks.
The presentation will take place at 3pm in Chatham building , room 810.
We are very impressed with the amazing work produced throughout the two weeks, y2 and y1 showed much enthusiasm and were engaged in learning Revit, Illustrator along with Lumion. Our collaborator Steve Goslyn from Chorlton Community Led Housing will be reviewing the presentations.
We are looking foward for the final output.

Semi- detached and terrace house group began to explore the landscape and green space for the quality of the living environment.
Communal gardens will be implemented as a vital part of each housing typology in order to contribute to their environmental benefits as well as delivering sustainable communities.

The semi-detached house group started exploring the advantage of using timber cladding along with its environmental qualities.
- Vertical continuous timber cladding will be used to provide shading over the windows and will be covering the whole building envelope.

Today at 10:00 am we had our first site visit at Rye Bank Field.
Our collaborator Chris Peacock guided us through the site and explained the current situation regarding the existing ditch which will be reconfigured to ensure that there will be no longer a risk of flooding .
The intervention will improve the ecology of the area as well as minimising surface water run-off from the site. It is a priority to focus on the lack of biodiversity, this can be done by introducing new species of fauna and flora, which will help people who are against the development to understand the importance of bringing to life an obsolete and neglected site.
