At Home in the Lonely City

Tower Hamlets, London, UK


Current redevelopment practices employed across the city have been identified as a significant contributor to the prevalence of loneliness, affecting most predominantly young adults, who are frequently displaced. Acknowledging this relationship and the accompanying narrative the project proposes an alternative, recognising the intangible social value of the existing conditions. Additional housing is delivered through utilising both predicted lifestyle changes and the existing morphology of a site in Poplar, resulting in integrative redevelopment. Conscious of the potential relationship between the home environment and loneliness, yet not seen as a solution, rather facilitating an opportunity for an alternative narrative for the existing residents.
