SUPER_bloc ©© is a 500m long subsidized housing scheme, purposely designed for the Bilston Commons, that sees 4ha of land along the Midland Metro line developed as 225 affordable single, duplex and triplex units above a communal, public ground floor. The scheme takes precedent from the Red Vienna period of housing construction and has at its centre the concept of “Commons”, or people’s rights to public space.
