The Bird’s Nest

This thesis addresses the limited availability of affordable housing in London. It considers the creation of a vertical residential community for young people just starting their careers at a site in central London. In addition to the infrastructure of the apartment building and ‘home’, the building facilitates social spaces for residents.
