Athletes' Village

London 2014

Patel Talor, in collaboration with BVN, designed two plots on the Athletes' Village for the 2012 Olympics, totalling more than six hundred mixed tenure homes in nearly 70,000sqm. The scale changes from an urban context with parks and infrastructure to buildings and homes. Our plan helps individuals to find their own way through this piece of city, making it usable and enjoyable for their own purposes.

Based on the idea of a city block with buildings around private courtyards, it offers a hierarchy of spaces from open and public to intimate and personal. Each elevation responds to the space it faces; ground floors cater to street level activities, with clearly marked entrances and easily distinguished apartments above.
