The Public House combines elements from the domestic setting to
create a publicly-accessible and shared series of spaces for
eating, resting and discussion. The domestic spaces encourage a
discussion about the role of public space as an extension of our
homes within the city. Created by Architects you&me and Artist
Zoë Fudge, this series of abstracted domestic spaces respond to the
spaces under the Westway and house installations and events by a
variety of visual and performance artists.

Goldfinger Factory, uses simple and familiar construction methods
that are reminiscent of domestic construction readily available
from DIY stores, using reclaimed and found materials from in and
around the spaces under the Westway and uses simple and familiar
