10m^2 – Live + Work
A transformative house design
Role: architecture design, laser cutting, modeling, photoshop, adobe after effects
Duration: 4 Weeks
The increasing housing price in Vancouver has made many houses unaffordable. However, downtown Vancouver provides a huge opportunity for jobs and are considered convenient for students and recent grads. This project looks at the relationship between one’s work and live life. Moreover, I wanted to address the increasing need for small housing to respond to increase density in Vancouver.
I proposed to create a house suitable for single occupants under the 10m2 limit thus providing an economic solution to the expensive housing prices in Vancouver. The design concept is to work with this 10m2 constraint and design a house that is fully functional and can be expanded to more than twice its original area. To combine it with my studio brief to create a Work-Live home, I want to make the work live environment more intimate and add value to the occupants in a very small space.
