We collaborated with Pullens Lane Allotments (PLA) community in east Oxford through a project entitled PLA/:LIVE which involved participatory design workshops and co-design of a range of community amenities on their allotment site: a strawbale community building, greenhouses, rainwater collection, accessible growing spaces and a compost toilet all made from local, natural, reclaimed materials.

The compost toilet was built collaboratively with local craftspersons, allotment holders and students, constructed from reused cable reels, locally sourced sweet chestnut and reclaimed brick. Since completion the facility has become a popular asset to the community.
