second housing project 2008007
In this 2nd project, I assumed one dwelling type, a terraced house first as it is developed, then a semi-detached house.
In version two, this dwelling type is stacked, which creates maisonettes.
The dwellings on the street level are suitable for families (they feature a garden, like a terraced house),
the dwellings on the 2nd level are suitable for cohabitants, without being a small flat.
(It is actually a full house, the only thing missing is an attic). The absence of a garden is compensated
by an extra deep, wide terrace, and the location in a quiet park-like setting with a plenty of public green.
One of the blocks is built on a parking garage, this allows the cars to be hidden from street view.
The parking layer also creates a break in the façade so that the block is lifted slightly.
The supporting structure of the semi-detached dwellings is masonry, and maisonettes are build with a reinforced concrete
tunnel formed skeleton.
In principle the modular dimensions make that the construction methode doesn't really matter.
