P1: ‘Caver’s Shelter’
The site my partner and I have chosen is located along the valley of Peak Cavern. Upon approaching the cave, we realised the valley was the perfect location for a caver’s shelter. The main theme of the project is to bring emphasis on the activity with the order of spaces. Spaces include washing and drying of equipment and gear, bunk beds for up to 6 cavers, a kitchen, a bathroom and a outdoor communal area with seats around a campfire pit. The campfire pit is dubbed as a prominent space, as it allows cavers to share their experiences while admiring the view of Peak Cavern.
The following project sits along the George Leigh Street of Manchester. The area of Ancoats was known to be an economically deprived area during the 18th and 19th Century. Ancoats suffered a great deal of issues relating to health and poverty. The local council then decided to regenerate the site in early 1990s’. The concept of the library predominantly relates to the history of the cotton industry in Ancoats. The Library offers a space for exhibiting the spinning machines on the ground floor, an ‘interactive zone’ which accommodates group study spaces and meeting rooms on the 1st floor and a silent study room on the 2nd floor for independent learning.
The following project adopts a co-housing scheme that would consolidate unemployed individuals with families of 5 and young professionals . 84% of Britons say they hardly know their neighbours. Due to Burngreave’s significant unemployment rate, I believe the core values of a proposed co-housing scheme should prioritise the need for education and gain of skills. Hence, the main concept of the scheme amid the notion of cooking together, and exchange of transferrable skills. Principle aspects of the scheme consist of a cohesive garden/landscape for children and adults of the neighbourhood to integrate. A communal kitchen is also available for the users of the scheme to gather and socialise.
