CLIENT BRIEF:

  • Design 2 semi-detached accommodation units.

  • Design should accommodate comfortable bachelor apartments with bathrooms and kitchenettes

  • To serve as both staff accommodation and as an education tool to demonstrate sustainable living.

DESIGN TEAM’S PROJECT OBJECTIVES:

  • Simplicity: the concept must be simple, relative low technology and easy replicable

  • Appropriate: the methodology must suit the area.

  • Adaptable: the system must be flexible in order to facilitate different conditions.

  • Job creation: local unskilled labor can be employed.

  • Educational: both the process and the finished product must create opportunities to demonstrate alternative or improved methods of construction.

  • Maximize use of natural, locally sourced materials: reduce environmental impact by eliminating associated transportation and high levels of embodied energy while supporting local economy.

  • Community development: improved construction methods result in better housing. Better housing creates a healthier community.monies that go into the development should be spent within the local community and area as much as possible.

  • Business development: identify opportunities for established micro-enterprises.

  • Skills transfer: local builders can learn better building practices that will result in safer, more durable housing. Labor-based practices rather than machine-based.
