Floor plans (1:1000) with estimated Privacy
50 Housing Floor Plans is the latest pack of our collection aiming to promote the desirable dwelling. Containing 50 floor plans from recent collective housing buildings (2000-2017) with different sizes and forms (Z-shape, Butterfly, Spine, Empty Circle, Cactus…), in addition to 50 housing units taken from projects.
We analyse all of the projects in terms of Privacy and Exterior-ness, the two behaviours which best define the desirable dwelling.
Why did we choose Exteriorness and Privacy as the main criteria in collective housing?
Because this is the criteria where the isolated dwelling excels within the imagination of future residents.
What is more private than a detached house?
What is better connected to the exterior than a detached house?
This is what collective housing must to compete with providing imaginative solutions which combine exteriorness and privacy.
