Housing redevelopment Project
Final Year Curtin University
50 residential units located at Kowloon City Hong Kong
The site is approximately 1700 sq m. It locates in the center of Kowloon City between the Kowloon city park and the tenement housing group. I chose the site for it rich information background about the community life. The district has been filled with stories since the old Kei Tak airport with airplane flying just above the rooftop. In my design, the residential units is 67, 3 restaurant and 2 geocery stores on ground floor; 2 book stores and playrooms area on the B/G Floor.
The idea of Stripscape is about vertical greenry, In a given circumstance in Hong Kong living, living density is a prior concern then living quality. Yet such a trend are push to an extreme as what we see nowadays in our urban living. The plot ratio is maximized to secure profit with typical floorplan layout to ensure efficiency. I introduce the possiblity of new urban life with pocket landscape going along the central atrium which brought life and community back to living in a vertical manner; and that’s stripscape.
