The aim of the app is to help developers and others evaluate options for factory-built homes for specific sites. The Prism housing design app has been developed by design practice Bryden Wood, building on work by building consultant Cast and in collaboration with the Mayor of Londonâ€™s office. It is a response to a call from the London Assembly planning committee in 2017 for better design guidance to enable the wider adoption of manufactured homes to speed up supply.
The developers hope that by open-sourcing the app, it will encourage collaboration, leading to it being further developed by designers.
The app, as it is open-sourced, could be adapted for use also in developing countries where it could be very useful.
