Offsite: design meets manufacture

We are passionate about the opportunities presented by offsite, particularly in the production of our future homes. Occupying the intersection of architecture and industry, the technology has real potential to bridge the growing gap between supply and demand to provide high quality, affordable and sustainable homes at scale.

As part of Green Sky Thinking in 2017, we hosted an event exploring the emergence, challenges and opportunities posed by offsite. This was centred around a striking conceptual pod, whilst an exhibition charted the role of offsite in relation to the current housing market – looking at how projects and events of the past have informed the design and manufacture of homes today. A panel of speakers also discussed the role this technology could play in solving London’s housing crisis.

This document summarises our research; incorporating information about the pod, the full exhibition and some of our current offsite projects.
