STACKED HOMES FOR HOMELESS PEOPLE: The rising homeless people has made us ponder over various solutions for housing. The Thuruthy colony in Mattanchery Kochi has been chosen as 64 cents of land has already been acquired by the government for housing. 67 families have been waiting for NOC to build these homes. As a sustainable resource we have utilised the concrete pipes which can accommodate two families in three concrete units. This can be further extended upwards by stacking them one over other. All placed in row and heaped on the top of one another making it possible to add on more for the needy.

CLOSE FAMILY TIES: Life inside the circle is inspired by the filipino culture of "close family ties". Using this trait as the design concept gives the space its own character and a sense of identity. The idea to stack the concrete pipes together in a staggered position is to create a sense of depth. A playful composition that also makes the structure stable in a mix of horizontal and vertical arrangements. Adding colours boasts a unique character to the building like creating a bright community that drives away from a negative impression of homelessness. Instead of solely focusing on the arrangement of the structure, the focus will be driven to the colours that interlink the spaces together…..

ENDLESS TUBE: Concrete pipes are great to use as a support for houses. The logic behind piping and tubing used for waste disposal in houses, the giant tubes must be connected in a continuous line allowing people to circulate across the structure without having to step outside almost never. Each section contained in one tube holds a public corridor and one third of a house built out of a single sheet of 3D printed, producing a seamless surface free of rough angles better for ascetic purposes. The result is a system that can be arranged in an almost endless continuum where the habitants are flowing constantly, one house after the other, only limited by the given space……

ADAPTER: FLEXIBLE DESIGN: The concept of the project is the flexible design of the blocks. This system helps set units everywhere. It can even be placed on the roof of another building or units may be between two existed buildings. However, blocks can form its own complex with variety of different heights and amount of concrete pipe
RELAXATION AND REHABILITATION: The site is located in a town called Stroud in the South West England. The location is away from the busy cities as these houses are likely to be a place of recovery, rehabilitation and so there needs to be an element of relaxation while these people get back on their feet. Having been homeless they are likely to have experienced many traumas and so need some time to develop and regain their well-being. But neither did I want the location to be so isolated that these people do not experience regular life, people and community.…..
