LIVING STRUCTURE- LONG SECTION. HAVANNA ESTATE

Disassemble – Rethink – Reassemble

Expanding on several new residential possibilities in the arch401 project, the term co-living has been adopted, which can be formed as, shared living, flexible home, and compact living. the 402/403 project has aimed to provide a community housing network which can provide several new living possibilities for the unemployed/ younger generation of Budapest who desire an independent and self-sufficient lifestyle. Havanna has one of the highest rates of unemployment in the district as well as the oldest community of inhabitants of who firstly moved to the estate in the 70s. And so, with a creative use of space, co-living has the potential to increase the wellbeing and creativity of the residents by focusing on designing spaces that facilitate interaction, value ecological standards and regenerative design approaches and are centred around the needs of their communities. Through a government subsidized DIY housing scheme, a multi adaptable/functional structure has been formed to create a new lifestyle within the blocks. The project aims to determine a carbon conscious approach to increasing the lifespan of the blocks, whilst creating a systematic process for demolition and re-assembly.
