Alison Brooks: 'We need to make suburbs super'
The Green Rethink: Alison Brooks on how future housing schemes will have to ‘adapt housing typologies to 21st century lifestyles’
‘Making suburbs super’ is Alison Brooks’ mantra. Using her practice’s Stirling Prize-shortlisted Newhall Be scheme in Harlow as a case study, Brooks argues that future housing schemes will have to ‘adapt housing typologies to 21st century lifestyle and technologies’.
Brooks also explains how Newhall Be has been future proofed by including a study for homeworkers and the option to add an extra room in the roof for only £8,000. A model that she said proves that ‘…development density could be added while increasing volume and increasing quality of life.’
