It works on a joined up thinking, whole systems basis, , driven by conversations and collaboration at a community level. We are a not for profit business building unique practical solutions for communities , micro housing, innovative design and construction.  Working closely with partner organisations we aim to help strengthen, widen and integrate positive social change. 

​During the past couple of years with a small team of skilled crafts people and young apprentices we have completed several successful projects and installed social spaces in the city, providing these at minimal cost for our partners and Cardiff City Council.

Our model is to fund many of our activities through sustainable commercial social enterprise  supplying bespoke buildings and high end furniture.

The Bottega Project aims to generate a model for change to a sustainable, compassionate way of life at a city scale. And that city is Cardiff

These might take the form of pop up street repair and construction workshops, cooking get-togethers, mobile arts spaces and sculptural street galleries
