Melbourne's CBD cityscape
Our students conducted a feasibility study for Walk Arcade, Intercontinental Hotel, Melbourne Exhibition Centre and Job Warehouse.
Different cohorts of rough sleepers were assigned to each building to determine whether this model could be successfully applied across different locations, populations and structures. Occupants are:
- adult female and youth, with or without pets
- adult males with or without pets
- homeless or near homeless COVID affected families.
The interiors will be divided into public and private spaces with considerations given to material comfort and the concept of home. The spatial planning is sequenced to progress with the person as they carry out the pre-bedtime rituals of eating, washing, dressing and sleeping.
