Collective complete first English work
Collective Architecture have taken their first steps into the social housing market in  northern England with completion of new build homes at Bowflatts, Great Clifton and a flatted development at Ehen Court, Egremont.

Ehen Court was designed for Home Group North West exclusively for the use of elderly residents and is intended to encourage ‘community’ living with extensive provision of communal spaces.

This entails large open plan stairwells with seating spaces and a large south facing garden with park benches to facilitate socialising.

Bowflatts meanwhile has been designed specifically for wheelchair users with a distinctive stepped building line to accentuate the site topology.
each home at Bowflatts features a large corner window to draw in morning light

Nice scheme, would be a good change if developers would employ such practices as Collective to produce similar work for the open market.

Because it would be much more efficient for the developers to go out and burn a massive big pile of £20 notes !

If you think its not so then please feel free to go try it yourself ?

If house builders spent as much on design as they do on marketing they might do better.
