Stage 5

Through my 3D speculative drawing which highlights the character of Folkestone through numerous different activities, I explored housing from a lens of urban camping using tufted insulated fabric facades.

Being intrigued by Japanese wood construction, the structure of the housing modules was designed using numerious wood joineries, and could be easily disassembled over time. On the other hand for my community building which housed a cafe, restaurant and a pub(in the existing building), I approached its design by setting parameters for myself from the RIBA sustainable outcomes guidebook.

The design was driven by making concious decisions keeping in mind, the embodied carbon of the materials and integrating passive design techniques like overhangs on the southern facade , cross ventilation and a strategy to exhaust warm air through the stairwell of the building.
