Due to the growing population in UK, according to Population Matters,`The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world with no end to population growth in sight, pressure on wildlife, housing, public services and resources will continue to grow.” It is estimated that the population will grow up to 73 million by 2041. In order to accommodate people, more housing will be needed.
The aim of this project is to increase housing in village areas, as villages have lost more than a million people aged under 25 and gained more than 2 million over 65s, according to Financial Times (November 2017). A balance between the different age groups living in a village area is manifested through this project.
In order to achieve the balance between the different age groups more younger people will have to live in a village area. There comes the question of how to attract younger people to the village; perhaps by adding different activities in the programme of the project.
Another key part to have in mind is how to make younger and older people interact with each other, and how to keep or increase the wildlife of the area. The way that the architecture will be built will give them the choice of interaction with each other and with the wildlife.
The architecture will try to give the experience of openness and a connection with the surrounding as it is going to be placed in an area surrounded by fields of landscape.
