  • Comment

Piercy Conner's proposal for the regeneration of Brooks Road Estate in east London is based on the idea of adding 'overcoats' to existing dwellings. These operate as environmental buffers, harnessing solar energy, collecting rainwater and reusing clean warm air, as well as providing additional usable space. Living rooms are reoriented to face the street.
