Work in boxes, live in boxes - time to think outside the box!



Studies have suggested England has some of the smallest housing in Europe, and that shrinking space is limiting people's routine activities at home, including socialising, home study or work and storing personal belongings.



In 1920, the average semi-detached new-build had four bedrooms and measured 1,647 sq ft. Today's equivalent has three bedrooms and is 925 sq ft. Typical new terrace houses have shrunk from 1,020 sq ft and three bedrooms, to 645 sq ft and two bedrooms.
