The Workhouse

The proposed development will aim to depart from a ‘top-down’ stakeholder orientated business model to an alternative resident-driven model, promoting a sense of community, ownership and feeling of value. As we get older our world shrinks, the proposal aims ti accommodate for all resident needs and requirement. Utilising elaborate contraptions that assist with everyday life, increasing in intensity to suit all levels of frailty, inspired by the ingeniously complex contraptions by the artist Heath Robinson.
