Abstract

The Estate Outside the Dwelling is a comparative study of six housing projects located in London and Sheffield, England. The major objective of the study was to learn how residents from family units in different stages in the family life cycle reacted to different building forms and aspects of site design. The focus of the study was, as suggested by the title, on the exterior of the buildings and the spaces between them. While not explicitly stated in the report, another important implicit objective was to provide guidance to local housing authorities as to characteristics of housing design that enhance resident satisfaction.
