Mini Living - Ideas Competition
This proposal, ‘outHOUSE’, imagines a dwelling that can adapt and change with you through time. The overarching idea is to design only the framework or support structures of the house, providing the essential infrastructure (bathroom, kitchen, laundry and stairwell) and have the occupants fill in the rest as they require, exploring the notion of 'infrastructure as a generator'.
The traditional concept of laneways as service spaces is flipped it to imagine them as habitable social spaces. A reinterpretation of the granny flat typology, outHOUSE targets first home buyers, designing a framework that puts the users in control of the building process and programming of spaces.
