Flexible Living Space

The first part of the project investigates the problems arise from the pandemic. The aim is to create and design living spaces in response to the pandemic issue, in order to satisfy and better accommodate the different needs of people due to the sudden change of lifestyle due to the lock-down period.
As the lifestyles of people revolve around their own homes now, the few main needs of the people that will be focused on are defined spaces, private and communal spaces, and flexibility within spaces.
What I hope to achieve is to create a space that will be beneficial and feasible for the people at its best potential towards the new lifestyle as a result of the pandemic. Space will focus more on the overall wellbeing of people, allowing them to dwell and engage in activities normally even without leaving their homes such as working, exercising, hobbies, and playing.
Most importantly, to me, a home is meant for a family to be able to live comfortably and happily together. Space should allow every member of the family to engage in their personal activities and also activities together so to promote the idea of living harmoniously.
This space is supposed to allow people to better sustain themselves within their own homes during covid-19 but it is also a workable space for people even after or without a pandemic scenario hence it will be a long-lasting design.

Spatial Planning(Left). A comparison between the original and the reconfigured space(Right).
A private space for working or studying or having some alone time. A smaller space for better concentration and without getting disturbed. It acts as a meditative space as well. The window allows natural sunlight and the user to look out of the window when taking a break.
Toilet sliding door which is also a holding shelf that works both side, one facing the toilet and the other facing the bedroom.
The sliding door that separates the bedroom into 2 spaces for children sharing the room and both spaces can house different activities at the same time. It can also be opened, allowing siblings to play and engage in different activities together.
Opening the sliding door of the master-bed room allows the connection with the walkway to create a larger space/ living room space for people to watch tv or chat with each other. Bedroom space that includes a side sofa beside the window to act as a meditative space as well.
Opening the sliding door at the kitchen area together with the master-bed room sliding door allows cooking and a bigger space for eating together as a family. The kitchen space also includes space for a washing machine and some extra space for storage for items. It also shows the walkway that connects all the spaces together.
With all the sliding door opened, it allows the maximum usage of space within the space of the house. It also allows a bigger playing area for children.
