PLANNING & ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROPOSAL; 2016; UK
A conceptual design proposal of a duplex 3-Bed housing prototype that can be replicated to form a terraced, semi-detached or detached typology. This project was developed in 2016 as a proposal for Taylor Wimpey Housing Development.
Achieving maximum site efficiency by following long typologies, ease of construction and planning by avoiding internal columns, flexibility of life style by the way of arranging the bedrooms, light penetration into the building and the generous internal feeling of the space, privacy and avoiding overlooking neighbours, integration of smart home technology and enhanced environmental performance by use of solar panels in the roof of the building were the key criteria followed in the design of this housing typology.
The proposed design had an overall GIFA of approximately 94m2, divided into two levels of 50m2 in ground floor and 44m2 in the first floor. It included a living room, dining room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, upper level terrace and a utility room. A mix of local brick, aluminium, corten steel and wood would give a modern but yet homey feeling to the external appearance of the houses.
