Grow in the grid by Fathma Nazmeen

Grow in the Grid is a residential community that aims to set a lifestyle example by redefining housing through a self-build system that fits different user requirements. Units are grown along a grid that enables constant change.

Every resident gets their own living cube and a bicycle. They grow their own produce in communal farms that are sold in a resident-run farmer’s market.

In addition, the project also focuses on the wider context by bringing in the public through cycle paths, public spaces, and the farmer’s market in order to cater to the wider context.Connect with Fathma on Linkedin and Instagram
