We are an enterprising unit of residents with deep roots in the community. The steering group is led by Matthew Cresswell and Janita Han. Matthew is the Head of RE at Villiers High School. Janita is an architect at Architecture Initiative, an architecture practice based in central London.
The Arcadia Co-Housing Cooperative’s main aim is to develop and design an affordable small scale, community-led co-housing scheme for 10-20 families, to be based in the borough of Tower Hamlets or Hackney. The co-housing will be run on Christian principles of neighbourly kindness and intergenerational social cohesion.
