iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

The idea was to create a micro living space for students with a sharing point in the middle. It was a challenge to have only 4.4 m² of basic area for everything needed for living except the bathroom facilities. Each little house (for one student) has a little kitchen, a bed, a storage place and a mobile workplace. In the middle of the little houses is the bathroom – the room to share together. The height of the little houses is 3.30 m. This is necessary for the bed, which moves to the 'second floor'. The module is completely made of recycled or reused materials. We tried to create the feeling of 'home' in a new town with only 4.4 m².

This project shows a strong commitment to material recycling, the use of regenerative energy sources and sustainability in general. Plans, sections and axonometric projection reinforce the 'descriptive memory' presented by the designer from an architectural point of view.
