Contemporary Vernacular Design - Clare Nash - BS081

Contemporary Vernacular Design - Clare Nash - BS081

The second Episode with Architect Clare Nash this time discussing the findings from her book https://www.ribabooks.com/Contemporary-Vernacular-Design-How-British-Housing-Can-Rediscover-its-Soul_9781859465844

The book presents 25 inspirational housing schemes providing hope for the future of home building in Britain. Highlighting the need for the UK to reclaim its sense of local identity through the vernacular, these case studies are not just examples of good design but demonstrate the achievable nature of contemporary vernacular in today's society.

Generating a sense of place, community and regional identity, these schemes are also affordable and highly energy efficient. Through site visits and interviews with both architects and residents, each case study explores how the schemes were delivered, how they have been received by the community, and how passive principles of vernacular design were applied to create true sustainability.

We are architects, helping people create: Inspiring Places, Smarter Spaces, Happier Faces
We believe in creating a better world. A world where the environment and people are looked after, supported and cared for, in equal measure.

Places where neighbourliness replaces loneliness, where you notice trees before cars, places where you feel safe and happy.

Within those places, we create homes that allow you to appreciate the beauty in everyday life. Where you feel well, alive, optimistic and happy.

If you are the kind of person who appreciates beauty in every day life, who cares about the environment and the people living in it – then we can create a home or a place for you.

This could be anything from an extension to a dream home to a small housing development.
