Nimble Spaces – Inclusive Neighbourhoods is a community led housing project of with planning for 25 homes on four sites in the town of Callan, Co. Kilkenny.
The project developed in distinct stages. From 2012-15 an arts-led research project enabled people with a disability to creatively explore, together with people interested in co-housing, their sense of “home”. LiD Architects led a co-design process to realise the architectural ambitions of the project, and a group interested to be ‘constructive neighbours’ set up as Lionra Co-Housing. In 2017 planning permission was granted to Camphill Communities of Ireland AHB and Lionra Co-Housing to develop 25 homes on four sites in Callan. In 2021, the social housing element of the project is now led by Tuath Housing as a Turnkey/CAS initiative with Lionra Co-Housing promoting the co-op housing element in collaboration with Ó Cualann CoHousing Alliance.
