Last weekend bptw’s Part I architectural assistants Matt Brown and Jacob Sturdy undertook an interesting project looking at London Housing Design Guide standards. Using Chalk and masking tape they created a temporary drawing titled 23m2. This is a typical Living/Kitchen/Dining space according to London Housing Design Guide space and furniture standards.
The piece was created in Peckham next to a multi-storey car park to get a view in plan, with the aim of seeing what these dimensions feel like at 1:1. Matt and Jacob then invited passers-by to walk through the living space. For the next phase, to be titled 50m2, they intend to map out an entire one bed apartment.
