NEW Housing LIN guest blog: From care-free to care-ful housing with social purpose by Roland Karthaus

Roland Karthaus

We are pleased to share with you our most recent guest blog titled ‘From care-free to care-ful with social purpose’ written by Roland Karthaus from Matter Architecture.

Housing-with-care needs care in its development as well as in its operation, to cater for quality of life. But the government’s current planning reforms appear to have paved the way for quantity over quality of housing. Roland Karthaus asks if and how we should rely less on mandates and more on encouraging care in the way housing is developed by building trust between organisations around a shared ethos of caring about what we do and what happens as a result.
