Henley Halebrown Rorrison Architects. Copper Lane Co-housing. London 2013

This project of collective housing is located within a block of row houses. As an alternative to the typi­cal typology of London boroughs, occupying this residual void between rear courtyards with six dwellings meant forgoing private outdoor space and connection to the street. This would-be huis clos aims to provide a so­lution to the scarcity of land to build on while also preserving resident independence. Copper Lane considers itself to be co-housing in that all the dwellings share the 61 m2 building con­taining the utility room and a multi-purpose space, at the centre of the construction, with direct access from the interior of each dwelling. The density obtained by Henley Halebrown Rorrison –60 dwell­ings per ha– is twice that of the local area.The average floor area of each dwelling is 139 m2. As an example of co-housing the balance between communal and private space (61 m2/832 m2) is skewed, however, as a solution for re-densification, the project offers new possibilities.
