|Title:||INTEGRATED LIVE WORK HOUSING : COMMUNITY LIVING||Authors:||LIM HWEE CHIM||Issue Date:||2003||Citation:||LIM HWEE CHIM (2003). INTEGRATED LIVE WORK HOUSING : COMMUNITY LIVING. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The concept of community has always been associated with village life where there were intense engagement within the environment However with the high mobility and low degree of familiarity of people, it makes a high rise& high density living environment even more unconstructive for community and interaction. Therefore the aim of the thesis attempts to address the above issues with live work as a catalyst to stimulate participation and interaction in a housing project It makes use of the increased time of people spend at home to provide opportunities for interaction and participation, which is seen as a cycle of political and economical development of the vernacular past. The study is approached in a progressive manner, where architectural strategies and planning are discussed from the micro unit to macro commune level. The thesis itself is the method of which establishes a framework by which 1. Micro unit level: exploration of spatial permutation of flexible and diversified unit space to demonstrate strategic combinations of space as a response to given programs, users and site 2. Macro commune level: demonstration of threshold realms in several hierarchy to discover new hybrids of urban living in the contextual envelop The thesis project is exploratory in its design method and conceptual proposal. Therefore in order to demonstrate the proposed units and threshold idea, a site is chosen to demonstrate the reality and the ground for the thesis proposition. It then forms the interpretation of a new master plan for the given site, and shapes the character of it by the proposed exploratory study, as well as exploitation of the site forces and strategic factors.||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/244699|
