Referencing East End traditionally doocots, these human-cots are simply a series of replicated 2-bed apartments, designed on a square grid and rotated around a central vertical core. Ideally suited to mass production, square in plan and square in section, the Cubes were born and we explored an elevational game. Repetition can be predictable and just as there are commonalities and differences between the doocots, so there are commonalities and differences between the Cubes. Rotating the plan allowed variance on the elevation; their scale visually reduced by introducing double height openings. These take on an inhabited rubix cube effect.
