The original 2007 report: Recommendations for Living at Superdensity

This report was the work of four of London’s residential development practices – HTA Design, Levitt Bernstein, PRP and PTEa.

The collaborative publication is the output of many years of collaborating through our 4HA – 4 Housing Architects, and asks the question of how to design for the opportunities and risks posed by the shift towards much higher density housing.

“Design for London welcomes this report on understanding how we can design successful high density developments, and in particular how we can respond to the challenge of providing good family housing as we build at increasingly higher densities. We particularly commend the authors for bringing together and addressing a series of difficult and complex issues, from the provision of outdoor space, access to local facilities and decent space in the home, to how we procure, deliver and manage new housing developments.”
