Shoichiro Hashimoto & Benedikt Kowalewski_Unit

Thrown In At The Deep End Construction-based thoughts lead us to the first idea of a design for a unit in the Kampung Melayu. Starting with a very small infrastructure module located in the base of the unit that should incorporate all basic functions like a sewage system and a fresh water supply we went on designing the unit out of very tiny modules that can easily be brought to the construction site by manpower due to the lack accesibility by cars or trucks. With our toolbox of different units like e.g. the staircase unit, the housing unit, the wet-wall unit etc. we want to provide a flexible and adaptive system that can be fitted to the very different building sites inside the Kampung.
