Group 3 – Kay Banbou

James Turner, Simon Abboud, Ego Jusmé

This project was designed to provide a high level of flexibility in how the structure could be occupied by one, or two or more families. This project allows for multiple options for commercial space at the ground level as well as options for external or internal vertical circulation to allow for more than one occupant in the house. A very simple but strong structural wall was developed which could be replicated around the perimeter of the structure. Using guadua bamboo this project is design both on the building and urban scale. The roof is designed to collect water and underground the water storage area is designed to form a piece of a wider infrastructure so as these houses are built the water infrastructure for the community emerges.
