CTA are joint winners together with Metropolitan Workshop with Sir Richard MacCormac, WT Partnership, XC02 and Lee Mallet, for the Housing in the Private Rental Market Ideas Competition, launched by The Wates Group together with the RIBA.
From the Judges: ‘This scheme uses the British gardening obsession to kickstart and maintain a new community, with a clear idea of how this might be facilitated and made to work. The courtyard cluster typologies provide a well resolved take on the requirement for spatial flexibility in a typology which seem eminently suitable for the PRS. A lively and engaging proposal, beautifully presented, which felt plausible for todays PRS market.’

Supernature imagines a new type of community-focused suburban landscape where the emphasis is on quality of life and not home ownership.
The outdoors, gardening and community food production are proposed as the glue to both establish and retain a sense of community, combined with three distinct housing typologies designed to provide a variety of home environments that will be desirable to all ages and groups. Homes become containers for people, plants and future growth.
Slip House features in 2 double-page spreads in Chris van Uffelen’s book ‘Eco Living’.
