Case studies

In the 1990s Oxo Tower Wharf entered a new lease of life when Coin Street Community Builders began a major refurbishment project to transform the building into an awardwinning mixed use development of co-operative homes, retail design studios, specialist shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars.

The new music pavilion at St. John’s, a small state primary school in the Buckinghamshire village of Lacey Green, is an elegant and award-winning timber structure which was built as a co-operative venture with the school, local people and local workshops.
