The Dell Project was a six week collaboration between the Live Project team, the Dell Steering Group and the wider community, to jointly develop a vision for the future of the Dell, an attractive but underutilised green space in the village of Grimethorpe.
The Live Project Team worked closely with OpHouse, a collective established in 2020, to engage the local community and prospective residents in the transformation of a vacant care home in York into an affordable, tiny homes, co-housing development. The team hosted an exhibition during York Design Week to gain community insight and used research from this to produce three useful booklets to inform people about co-housing, propose future community facilities for the building and engage potential residents.
Our Live Project brought together a vision for the district and city, which centers around a new green corridor and sustainable transport links, such as new walking and cycling routes, and larger modes of transport. The green corridor vision will allow for further aspires to create a vibrant place that empowers communities and brings forth positive change.
