In recent years new types of housing tenure have entered the market. Principal among these is Build to Rent which after a long incubation is starting to make a major contribution to housing need. Formation Architects has designed several BtR schemes and understand the specific requirements that make these developments viable.

Another interesting variation is ‘Co-Living’ and we have been asked to design several such schemes recently. With smaller unit sizes and communal facilities, this typology has many synergies with hotels and our experience in that sector has proved valuable.

Other sectors where have had recent experience include student housing, permitted development and retirement housing.
