GREENHOUSE HAVEN ONODY RESIDENCE PREFAB MICRO-UNITS



G R E E N H O U S E H A V E N

Greenhouse Haven is an academic project situated on Queen Street West. This space mixes private (residential) and public spaces by creating an indoor public greenhouse that can be enjoyed year-round. The site protects and connects the existing elm tree on the site to the greenhouse which is accessible from all three intersections to promote public use. In the greenhouse, users have the choice to use amenities, such as a café which promotes users to spend more leisure time in the space.

O N O D Y R E S I D E N C E

The Onody Residence Project was an academic project customized for real clients. Done in groups of 2, we first visited the clients for a site visit and a meeting regarding their vision for their existing bungalow home. Using the hand drawn measurements and site photos, we were able to draw up existing and proposed floor plans. Due to budgeting concerns, the client wanted the project to be constructed in two phases to offset the total costs.

Carmel Place – nArchitects
As an experiment in micro-living, Carmel House was inspired by the notoriously small apartment units that comprise New York City's housing block. nArchitects set out to make a thoughtfully designed micro-apartment utilizing prefabricated assemblies to meet the strict tolerance required by the design. In creating these micro-units, nArchitects were exploring 21st century ways of inhabiting space; in a crowded and populous city, their building occupies a small footprint and was conceived of as a prototype that could be introduced to other cities facing similar housing and land shortages. For this project, we challenged the firm's decision of designing homes for individuals and designed micro family homes. The new design showcases unique ways to accommodate up to four people in small spaces. In order for this design to work, rooms needed to be designed to have multi purposes (such as living room converting to a bedroom with a pull out couch).
