Green platforms act as furniture for exterior space. They encourage occupants to interact with one another via spatial and social engagement.
OPEN HOUSE : Standardize module. Personalization. Diversity. Interaction.
While mass-produced housing offers efficiency, the downside is that it results in monotony and impersonality. Consequently, consumers are now shifting towards personalization, where diversity is embraced and consumer needs fulfilled. OPEN HOUSE is a student housing project that uses a standardized module that allows occupants to modify and personalize units to suit their needs. Using existing structure of former factory of Carlton Brewery, its location is suitable to accommodate surrounding University like Melbourne University and RMIT.
Recognizing that within mass standardized dwellings occupants can become isolated and do not interact socially with their neighbors, it prompted the creation of an environment that encourages occupants to engage with one another via shared spaces and direct viewing connections between apartments. Performative activity is thus encouraged via spatial and social engagement.
