FGLA 2019 Merit: 3500 Millimeter House
May 14, 2019
This three-storey house redefines the functional arrangements within a narrow site while creating bright and airy spaces. Affordability and compactness are values that the project has successfully embodied by integrating well thought-out spatial experiences, storage systems and low-cost strategies in the design process—from selecting a narrow site of about 3,500 millimetres wide and choosing cost-efficient materials and construction systems to implementing creative storage solutions and climate-responsive ideas.
One of the main aims was to create a compact space—much like a tiny or micro house—that will not compromise the quality of living for the occupants. The project does this by going wall-less; having different floor levels and ceiling heights, and connecting each floor with various types of stair-furniture interfaces, i.e., combining the furniture modules with functions such as stairs. Simply put, a plug-and-play system that will free the house of clutter and rigidity.
