The main objective is first and foremost to provide the people living in the Kampung with a rigid, flood-resistent structure. Through the centrally located circulation area runs load-bearing wall, that runs from the ground level all the way to the roof. At the same time this wall is also used to hold all the utilities needed for a basic water supply. The rain water collected in a special container on the roof is hooked up to the water pipes running through the central wall. On every floor each unit has access to water by using the water running through the stare well wall. In order not to further contaminate the ground water and the river, a special micro-filtration toilet system is used as seen in schematic on the right. This system uses a biologically activated ultrafiltration-membrane that needs no further maintenance.
