Housing Precedent Study
Aug - Oct 2017 | Studio: Integration I | Partner Project with Alessandra Fleck
A housing precedent study on BIG’s Mountain Dwelling located in Copenhagen, Denmark. A morphology of the precedent study was designed after an in-depth analysis.
This is the beginning phase prior to the eco-machine housing design. My partner and I analysed BIG’s Mountain Dwelling as a housing precedent study. Transformations to the existing design were done based on sunlight and wind Grasshopper/DIVA simulation results as well as our pros and cons analysis of the existing building. One of the negative aspects identified from the analysis was the disconnection of the “mountain” from its surroundings. Thus, the process of transformation included comparisons between the existing and the transformation.
