Following the Community Design Team’s hard work, early concept plans are prepared by our architects which are then put out for a weekend of feedback and consultation.

Over two weekends, twenty community volunteers, our ‘Atmos Ambassadors’ come together as our ‘Community Design Team’. They digest the material from the consultation, walk the town, and explore design ideas. Incredible days, captured here:

They use Christopher Alexander’s seminal book ‘A Pattern Language‘ to underpin their design ideas for a site in which life, community and culture can flourish, supported by our architect, Andrew Kirby. They are all working not on their own behalf, but on behalf of the wellbeing and needs of their community. Ordinary people can’t design sites? Nonsense. They were incredible.
