Small architecture has been historically stigmatised as affordable housing solutions that are either constructed under strict budget constraints or solely considered as temporary, portable, or seasonal.
This project queries can this mould be broken with an alternative form of the detached that supports the New Zealand lifestyle in a more sustainable urban pattern?
A focus is placed on the exploration of New Zealand homes that although large, aren’t designed with careful regard to changing circumstances. As detailed through a series of detached suburban housing models, acknowledging occupation as variable establishes a new mode of space management that is defined by the inhabitant opposed to pre-set behavioral rules.
This project was a finalist in the NZIA Student Design Awards and displayed at the University School of Architecture as part of the Four Futures Exhibition.
