Book Description

Collaborative spaces have been hailed as either the solution to the 21st century’s culture of overwork and broken housing market, or as an unworkable and impractical aspiration. Designing for such spaces has its particular challenges and considerations, especially in how to deliver attractive, healthy and efficient collaborative places. A practical and inspirational design guide, this book draws on the author's own experience, as well as the work of others, offering workable and practical solutions, and showcases a huge variety of different kinds of collaborative spaces across the globe. Including detailed and illustrated case studies across the co-living, co-working typologies – both new build and conversion, at different scales and in different settings – it concludes with a best practice toolkit, giving practical advice and lessons for all designers working at any scale. Case studies include: *The Project, Hoxton, London *Outpost, Bali *Venn, Tel Aviv
