P3 Housing Project

For our housing project, we were asked to design communal housing for people who are living in Burngreave. I decided to design a co-living house for single mother due to high percentage of single parents living in the area.

This diagram illustrates my approach toward the footprint of the site through maximum preservation of greenery as well as handling the height differences on the area

Private courtyard links with the back entry of the stores on the Street: Create a neighbour hood between the store owner and the residence whilst still keep the area to be quiet and secured.

Section AA showcases the public aspect of the building whilst Section BB illustrates different unit type
