Portfolio Project Detail

Urban Bothy Juliette Zidek, Wyatt Beard, Katie Coffey, and Romero

Located in a once homogenous office-dominated district of London, an exemplification of the ‘Old Era’, Urban Bothy provides a transformative space for the New Working Class to find connection, respite, and to curate a purposeful lifestyle. Taking inspiration from traditional shelters in the English countryside that provide wanderers with refuge free of charge, Urban Bothy’s primary aim is to facilitate a community of the New Era based on social trust. Like the code of old encouraging bothy visitors to act as respectful stewards, Urban Bothy provides a plethora of public space and amenities. These restructured provisions incite opportunity to anchor post-COVID urban life.
