Travellers Accommodation/Group Housing

Design Competition

The scheme accepts and accommodates the particular lifestyle of the Travelling Community in the layout and detail design of the buildings - the close connection of workplace and home, the interrelationship between trailers and house, the importance of the family room, the insistence on the extended family unit, the seasonal nature of occupation, and the interest (in animals nomadic and practical).The site plan echoes a nomadic tradition, which lies at the root of this culture.The area of the house is 135sqm and this accommodates eleven people.
