Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ recently completed prefab Y:Cube housing scheme for the homeless has just received its first tenants in Mitchum, London. Designed in collaboration with the YMCA London South West, manufacturers SIG, and project managers AECOM, the inspiring 36-unit project was manufactured in a Derbyshire factory and then transported and stacked, unit-by-unit, onsite like a series of building blocks. The affordable and quick factory-building housing project took only five months to complete and offers an innovative response to the city’s housing crisis.
