The Leeds Housing design by Kamvari Architects proposes terraced housing which meets the criteria of modern day living. The proposal refers to the context and the interesting site surrounded by canals and a waterway. This was seen as an opportunity to generate a central hub for the community which would separate them from vehicular routes and create a sanctuary for the entire community to enjoy. More images and architects’ description after the break.
Typical terraced housing as seen historically can lead to some quite unpleasant issues, despite this the typology is one which points towards a communal way of living with a strong sense of community and neighborhood. The challenge for us was to understand and take into consideration the positives from this typology and update them to bring them into the 21st century.
An algorithm and advanced computation were used to assess multiple arrangements of units in order to find the most efficient layout across the site considering aspects such as parking,a amenity and vehicular access.
