This project aims to discover the living issue of 3 generation family living in a house, where different personal habits and privacy needs to be considered and also to provide shared space for family to get along with.
This project is built on top of a existing factory, where extended structure and services needs to be carefully considered.
It is then developed to use prefabricated panels and raised access floors to shorten the construction duration and to solve the service maintenance.
