Bridging connectivity and distance is another focus – ensuring the workers maintain amity in light of social precaution. Much like recreating play-scapes for active engagement in our other projects, this purpose-built environment expects improved standards and better amenities to boost interactivity and more room for relaxation.
This new ratio allocated an adequate space of more than 7.5sqm per person, following the proposed calculations by TWC2. What we propose reserves space for an additional balcony with a ratio of 1 bathroom for every 5 persons.
We also seek to provide individual respite, enabled through semi-private corners within rooms. The jagged design of the imagined dorm interiors keeps window spaces staggered, for moments of quietude or a private phone call with loved ones.
Designing with adaptation in mind
Overall, the discussion around this concept revolves around urban living, modular spatial design, and personal emotional health. The nature of what we propose allows programmatic construction that could benefit purposeful facilities. Ultimately, the long-term game plan is for designers to assess and better current environments, helping to create communities that are well-regulated, sustainable, and united.
The future of spatial design and planning is presented with novel opportunities for solutions in a new age of distanced connectivity. Let’s get to thinking about the future of living spaces for decades to come.
