‘Factory Made Housing: A Solution for London?’ Is an NLA Research project which investigates the future of housing design, delivery and construction.
The research explores the benefits and barriers to adopting a factory-made approach to building homes for London and the UK. Penoyre & Prasad’s Burnholme Care Home has been included in the supporting book and public exhibition. The project has been designed to enable modular construction to provide a cost efficient and faster build option for the client, in line with the urgent need for more care homes to house our growing elderly population. It is one of Elderly Living schemes being developed by Penoyre & Prasad that explore better ways for the frail elderly, including those living with dementia, to live safely and enjoyably into old age.
