Vancouver - Affordable Housing Challenge
Pleštilová, Tereza ; Klimecký, Martin (referee) ; Gerö, Jiří (advisor)
The subject of this work was the preparation of project documentation consisting of the building permit documentation, documentation for the execution of the construction and the design of the architectural detail. The Bachelor thesis is based on the architectural study developed as a part of the course AG035studio work. The main idea behind social housing in Vancouver is to create affordable housing primarily for young people, whether individuals, couples, or families. The goal of the new housing design is to maximize the use of unbuilt and especially ballast plots near the city centre, attractive to the young generation that is lacking in Vancouver downtown. This need corresponds with the site plan which is derived from a maple leaf, the symbol of Canada, stylized into a pentagon. Addition of right angles creates a landform of variable use that can be easily placed on vacant lots even of irregular shapes. The proposed complex of three apartment buildings is located in the city of Vancouver, Canada, in a local neighbourhood of Mount Pleasant. The subject site is located south of the city centre and the site is easily accessible due to the well-developed public transportation and frequently used bicycle network. The proposal addresses both the building and the connection to the adjacent neighborhood. A total of three buildings of varying heights are proposed. The lowest is five storey and the heights escalate to the tallest seven storey building. The taller buildings stand on corners and visually exposed locations. There are four residential units proposed on each storey of the residential buildings, with the exception of the first storey offering rentable spaces. In total, sixty residential units are proposed, fifteen of which are of the 3+kitchen corner type and the other forty-five of the 1+kitchen corner type. The project documentation of the Bachelor's thesis deals with the apartment building A located in the north of the site.
