the market


second year term 2/3

Located on a street neighbouring Hove Cricket Ground, the project sits across the street and spreads into the front gardens of some surrounding properties. A steel framework supporting a series of grow boxes and cocoon inspired suspended 'sleeping pods'. Small temporary accommodation is provided for those enrolled in the social enterprise, facilities for users to gain skills are included within the market wall's functionality, and produce is grown onsite to be sold on market day with profits being returned back into the social enterprise. The project is intended to begin to address Brighton and Hove's large homeless population whilst also providing an amenity for the local community.
