Mæ has been commissioned by the Mayor of London to develop a new Housing Design Supplementary Planning Guidance to the new London Plan, which will advocate the best solutions for well-designed housing in the city.

The Futures London Workshop was an event held at City Hall in partnership with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust to aid us in developing this guidance. This was an open, frank, and enlivening event where we presented our ideas on emerging housing design and invited young Londoner's views on their cities and communities, including how these may be affected by either significant regeneration or by the changes that smaller infill housing might bring.
