Michelle Ho from the Barlett School of Architecture reveals an ambitious concept that involves a range of adaptable co-living units. The proposal is geared toward the densification of cities.

The designer expects her idea to build on the aesthetic and functionality of pre-existing structures. Her concept engulfs the possible future for the Central Hill Estate which was erected sometime in the 1960s in south London. Michelle Ho envisions the co-living units to be perched upon "the remaining social housing structure." Dubbed 'Retrofitting the Community Estate,' the goal of the project is to maximize the use of space, enhance housing density and even providing the opportunity for flat customization.

The co-living units will also be mostly assembled off-site. Later, they will be installed and secured via tension cables.
