Richard Rogers’ prefabricated housing for homeless people opens in south London

~
Designed for charity YMCA, this factory-building housing scheme by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners will provide accommodation for 36 homeless young people in Mitcham, south London

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ modular Y:Cube scheme for the YMCA was designed to be easily assembled and transported, so blocks can be moved between temporary sites in the capital.

Named George Williams Court after YMCA’s founding member, the complex comprises 36 single-occupancy apartments. Each of the 26-square-metre units has a combined living room and kitchen and a separate en-suite bedroom.
The brightly coloured blocks are stacked one on top of the other at a previously vacant plot between a play park and rows of suburban housing in Mitcham, a district within the London borough of Merton.
