KR+D conceptualises new living spaces for migrant workers

A concept that hopes to start conversations and inspire others to propose alternative living spaces for migrant workers, our designers considered a new era for spatial design and planning. From layout to material, modern elements of biophilic design and modular structures speak to wellbeing being a main concern in designing community spaces.

The most iconic element of our proposed architect conceptualised a tropical vernacular for the community. The proposed structure considers large overhangs, a porous layout with functional facade design. The octagonal shape of the building is intentional, making up eight rectangular forms of which are the positions of the rooms. Modular forms of the built aims for a fuss-free approach through the production and construction stage, especially if implemented on a wide-scale for the typical population expected for dormitories. Particular attention was emphasised on using prefabricated technology and low-density design to create a new archetypal layout that can be easily replicated and economically sound.
