A great idea for housing is the pre-fabricated ‘pod house’ – as made by the ZEDfactory (or: Zero (fossil) Energy Development (ZED) Factory) – as showcased at Eco Build:

ZEDfactory’s car park ‘homes on stilts’ concept is very practical:

And has even been suggested for the Ham car park behind the Sailing Club:
