PLP Architecture featured in GQ magazine October issue 2016
‘A commune, but not as we know it’

London’s housing shortage and lack of affordable yet comfortable accommodation, has led to a new trend:  co – living, the future way of living for mobile millennials. PLP Architecture has designed ‘The Collective Old Oak’,  the world’s largest co-living space.

“A key selling point is beautiful design. Old Oak is the world’s largest co-living space, and recently opened in northwest London right by the Grand Union Canal. It includes fitness facilities, a games room, cinema, library, bar, restaurant and three dining rooms. Created by the adventurous studio PLP Architecture for co-living property venture The Collective, it is a striking eleven-storey block of luminescent glass, topped by 700 square meters of landscaped gardens spread over two roof terraces.”
