Rock House rocks!

An experimental, collaborative, creative, affordable mixed-use building: Rock House in the centre of Hastings offers both residential and working space, aiming to “disrupt the usual gentrification story by making it possible for people who ‘scrape a living’ – but contribute so much to the area – to continue living and working here”. Karen Simnett writes.
