Event description

'More than a home, building community' will look at how we build community around social and affordable housing in ways that supports both the residents and the broader community.

Focusing on Haven Home Safe's community housing in Epping designed by MGS architects and delivered by Riverlee, this talk will unpack social and affordable housing. It will look at how Haven Home Safe worked with placemaking consultants, Village Well, and the designers to develop places, spaces and a culture that fosters community and connection to place.
