Reclaim Magazine December 2017 NestHouse feature – has a frank article about my story and the development of the NestHouse prototype and Josh Littlejohn’s subsequent request to use my concept house for the Social Bite Village in Edinburgh – part of their drive to eradicate homelessness in Scotland.
In early 2017 I designed a special variant of the NestHouse for the project – now known as the NestHouse Duo which has two single bedrooms with sleep niches and a communal living space in a compact footprint of about 30 square meters. The village in Granton has now broken ground and is well under way. The first NestHouse Duo prototype sat in St Andrews Square, Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Festival and has since been to the airport and latterly sits outside of the old fire station next to the Art College – quite a tour to make friends and raise funds for Social Bite!
The article mentions the culmination of Social Bite’s fundraising activities – Sleep in the Park which is happening this Saturday 9th December 2017 – an overnight sleep-out with entertainment from John Cleese, Deacon Blue, Liam Gallagher, Amy Macdonald etc etc.
