Shared outdoor space
The plan above shows the proposed layout of the three phases of Fruit market. Each phase is centred around a shared communal space as well as each house having a private garden space. Each residents group for each phase can influence the type and the extent of the landscaping in their shared spaces and around their properties.
Shared facility -A better community
Facilities could include communal gardens, a terrace, BBQ areas, bike sheds, storage or even an apartment that could be booked out for your visitors.
Successful collaborative developments have proven that when neighbours share facilities and are involved in the design of a project from the beginning, it creates a more satisfying result for all with a real sense of community.
