The Creative Suburb?


With a view to reduce or eliminate the commute, in 2016, Dr Malcolm Holz hypothesised an entire neighbourhood, suburb, or town being populated by residents who work or can work from home. 

Whilst focused on creative industries workers – arguably one of the hardest hit and least financially supported cohorts in the current pandemic – the building and urban designs proposed in The Creative Suburb eBook, are suitable for anyone engaging in any form of creative activity, including home schooling and entertainment.

In addition to ‘vernacular’ creativity, in a creative suburb, dwellings are designed with flexibility to operate and grow a business in addition to providing a home for residents, including supporting co-living and co-working arrangements.
