We were recently invited to give an online tour of our home on the Vanbrugh Park Estate as part of Open City’s ‘At Home with Open House’ online series. Jess took almost 300 viewers on a Zoom tour of the house and answered questions on life on the Greenwich estate designed by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon. Open City director Phineas Harper also lives on the estate and took part in the same tour, giving viewers an insight into the different types of homes across the estate.
Following the tour, Open City visited to create a short film about the estate. Phineas shows us round his home and discusses what lessons we can learn from the estate to take forward into council housing today. I talk about our experience of living here for the past four years and our Bedlington whippet Loki makes an inevitable appearance.
