The Housing Design Handbook

The Housing Design Handbook
David Levitt, Jo McCafferty

The revised edition of The Housing Design Handbook sets out design principles for all the essential components of successful housing design – including placemaking, typologies and density, internal and external space, privacy, security, tenure, and community engagement. The publication includes two projects by Proctor & Matthews, Abode at Great Kneighton in Cambridge and Horsted Park in Kent.

Written by David Levitt and Jo McCafferty and with contributions from more than twenty other leading practitioners, The Housing Design Handbook is an essential reference for professionals and students in architecture and design as well as for government bodies, housing associations and other agencies involved in housing.
