Redefining the Community

In this unprecedented time where we are bound by our homes. We longed for human connection more than ever. However, our need for security and privacy turn us into prisoners of our home. The moment we close our doors, we are isolated from the outside world.

Ordinary apartment walls and partitions are too cold, too predictable and too impenetrable. Community living should be more than just a group of people coming together and sharing amenities. Coliving creates the opportunity for social interaction in everyday life.

The design aims to introduce adaptable spaces that can conform to different privacy requirements and communal settings. The use of sliding partitions to divide spaces into pockets creates variable thresholds that are more flexible. Blurring the boundaries between private realm and communal spaces helps retain our sensibility towards family and community members.
