With the growing population, the land is constantly seen as a depleting resource and thus has increased real estate prices. Today, the definition of a house has barely boiled down to it being a commodity that constitutes a kitchen, a living area, bedroom and bathroom. This commodity offered is sometimes so inhabitable that it even lacks the basic notion of light and ventilation. Eventually, all the other additional notions of what a house should offer then become secondary. How do we then redefine a modern living space for a space crunch situation that it is not just habitable, but also restores these essential notions that make it a house?



Design a ‘Living Space’ for a family of 6 (people from 3 generations to be considered). The participants must give a character sketch of the users/family chosen. Based on this, propose a modern way of living in a space crunch scenario for them.
