When people live in cities for a long period of time, the idea of leaving the hustle and bustle behind is either very appealing or totally unthinkable. Between crowded streets and overflowing public transport networks, life can be pretty hectic in the big cities. One of the main reasons that many people dream of getting away is because everything tends to move a lot slower. Being surrounded by nature and greenery has been proven to reduce the levels of stress and depression. Rather than waking up to the sounds of car horns, much more likely to wake up to birds singing.
Compact Living; Lightweight; Space Expression; Space Function
The ideas that form the basis of the project, seek to explore and reveal the issue of compact living. It has been about limited space, movement, distribution, and very much concerned about human comfort and adaptability.
Its design will Identify and differentiate several functions of spaces through design. Furthermore, it is essential of accepting the human behavior and the psychology of space within the limited area. The use of progressive materials should complement the sleek design and quality of design to this escapade dwelling for ‘smart living & working’ environment.
This is to incorporate the artist privately owned workplace in designated space established within the artist’s residence (home office) to conduct their business tasks on a regular basis.
TASK + CONSIDERATIONS:
You are to design a combine space; a workplace where the end-user can work and live under the same roof, with considerations on how to fit it all in and yet achieved good comfort. This task shall give an idea how to cope with small spaces; living in a small space means to focus on good organization as well as design. The most important things to keep in mind are the functional needs, communal needs, personal needs, and privacy needs. Different combination of living are known by creating different plans of the space and using your creative mind to create multifunctional furniture.
The space given will be a two-20-footer shipping containers where you can configure the layout according to the site. The location of the project is in located in between the Royal Belum state park that you have identified earlier [location and its surroundings] to determine exactly how your ‘escapade living’ is placed. There are also some issues like how to survive and daily activities that need to be address before we can start with the design.
The units will design on the ground/cantilever/attachment using lightweight materials for private use as:
Double Occupancy; Temporary home & working spaces; A specific user/profession & determine his/hers of their environment: profession & environment
* You are allowed to utilize the “inbetween spaces” of the containers as well as being part of the whole design ideas.
In exploration of the space, you are to acquire knowledge on the functions of the space then form, define space characteristics by functions, aesthetic and environmental considerations.
Give an expression and emotions to the space derive from the keywords that you have obtain from the previous projects.
Obtain information on space requirements and programming of spaces.
Execute colour and graphical representation of ideas and proposal of the design project.
