The project is an adaption of the design strategies to the specific building context.

In order to create a healthy apartment environment, the design applies the design strategies in conjunction with the existing conditions of the specific apartment. The design starts from a zone and flow analysis of the apartments, based on the assumption that one household member is infected with the Covid-19. To ensure the infected can both have an isolation room and is still accessible to the bathroom and kitchen, while avoiding unnecessary meet with the other household members, a seperated flow for the infected is essential.

To maintain residents’ life satisfaction, the design redefines the existing housing spaces based on the update of the apartment functions during the pandemic, by division of existing space and addition of new space.
