‘Cocoon’ Housing. Much like a natural butterfly cocoon, this adaptable housing aims to protect, encourage and nourish the evolution of a living and changing entity within, this entity for now being a growing, changing and adapting modern family. The conventional notion of a family no longer exists, patterns of behaviour have changed and housing must reflect this and take into account the modern likelihood of regularly fluctuating family size due to demographic and economic changes. Primarily important is the capability of housing to expand and contract, to give modern families the opportunity to easily create a new space in which to care for extended family members.

Grandma moves in, granny flat built onto roof deck, In close proximity to house, with private entrance off deck

Or, adjacent flat on roof deck can become absorbed by extended family who wish to live in close proximity of one another

Equally important is the opportunity to ‘put down roots’ in a world where a social future is no longer guaranteed, due to the increasing preference to live in an online community opposed to real live ones in an increasingly digitalized world. To increase the prevalence of strongly bonded communities, housing must be so suitable that its occupants never want to move and in the process of staying, gradually build up meaningful and fulfilling connections with neighbours, leading to more cohesive and happier societies. So housing needs to be able to adapt to a number of situational changes, so that a family remains comfortable over an extended period of time in one place. Changes that take place are explored above.
