I offer a wide range of services in the housing realm — from post-occupancy evaluation, to survey design, social design analysis, planning and design guidelines, user studies, literature reviews and assistance with the complex matters related to NIMBY responses to proposals higher density housing.

 

Many of the topics that follow focus on the social and psychological aspects of housing.

 

Housing is so important to all people: it’s our primary environment, our core territory. For many it’s where we are born and die. We have great symbolic and psychological attachments to and investments in our housing.

 

The pages below explore some of those dimensions in the context of my research and social planning consulting work.

 

So if your project is a housing one, I’ve almost certainly had experience with something similar.
