TESSELLATION PLANNING
AND
HONEYCOMB HOUSING

TESSELLATION
PLANNING

Fly over the country and
you will see rows and
rows of houses. Is there
another way to lay out
buildings?

We present here a new
method of subdividing
land for housing that, we
believe, produces better
social, environmental and
aesthetic outcomes, but in
a way that uses land
more efficiently.

It was conceived as a
practical and economic
substitute to the terrace
house, but it can also be
seen to be an alternative
to row housing and the
linear approach to
planning.

Honeycomb housing: Creating communities in harmony with nature;
designing homes in a naturally efficient way
Gridlines and the linear approach

Conventional row housing and the linear approach to planning

Dwellings can be arranged
on individual plots of land as
detached units or linked to
each other. Detached or
linked they line up along
streets to form row housing.
In a row house, owners of
individual plots of landed
property maintain sole
occupancy rights.

Orthogonal grids have been
used as the fundamental tool
for subdividing land. Linear
roads provide roads to
individually owned plots of
land. Roads and gridlines
may be distorted by design
or necessity but retains

their linear nature.
