A project to create a shared communal, playable space - a 'village green' - in a housing estate. Once again, we try to evoke through our designs a 'culture of permission' and invitation - creating the context for non-planned, informal, social interaction. This finds symbolic and practical expression in the pathway with seating running through the playable, communal space. Note also the proximity of the playable space to the flats. In this instance, residents were fine with this. Catchall, general guidelines suggesting minimum distances between residential properties and play were irrelevant here.
