Communal Area

Community based space on the boundary between an allotment and a housing estate. The project, which took many forms, started with legally fighting for the securement of the land and is currently at development stage. The designing of a communal hut/kitchen for the purpose of offering workshops, classes and as a hub for a shop and market is taking place; its basic concept is to utilize the allotment building blocks: the scaffolding board, the found, the gathered, the disuse. A set of found doors opens up onto the space to allow for a communal table that extends ad eternum. The logo uses bunting as a starting point, referencing the fete, the street party and the public celebration. As the project, it takes many forms and changes constantly. Structure, in this instance, is less important that doing. (Ongoing project)
