HONEYCOMB HOUSING Honeycomb Housing is a * new, dense urban form that is able to capture the best social and environmental features of traditional rural communities to create Modern Kampongs in the City. Asmall number of houses ¢ are arranged around a small park in a looping cul- de-sac, like friends sitting around a table. The neighbourhood is bounded by a hexagonal perimeter at the back of the houses. There is only one entrance road. These factors help create a sense of belonging to a place and to a group.
