I have done a studio research for eco-friendly materials.
This research is Affect-T Studio .
Hong Kong studio Affect-T has come up with a proposed solution for the city’s housing crisis – a series of bamboo micro homes that could be installed inside abandoned factory buildings.
With a population of over 7 million living within a 400-square-mile radius, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated cities in the world and one of the most expensive place to live. As a result, thousands of residents are left without permanent homes.
The bamboo homes are usually not very huge. But the small space always can give people big comfurtable and safety. Especially, the materials are all bamboos. The pure natural space can take people away the crowed cities and go into the nature.
By the way, the dry bamboo can drive away insects in summer. There won’t have any place mold. It’s much better than other rooms which have many grent plants in. And the air is in circulation in the bamboo micro homes. So we don’t need to warry about the oxygen gas.
I love this small home, not only how eco friendly materials it has used, but also the way that bamboo in queues. Light from the gaps in the bamboo has a trace of mysterious feeling. Hong Kong who currently live without any permanent form of housing.
People live without a social safety net in a city where housing prices are some of the most expensive in the world. So this kind of homes is very approprate to them. Finally, I releazed that the housing design needs to consider from the people’s living conditions.
