Composite Environment: Digital Housing

Composite Environment: Digital Housing

Organic architecture takes a whole new meaning with Huan Miao Khoo’s rendition of the fervently artistic petal shaped housing project. Envisaged as a part of student digital architecture research at The University of Sydney, the conception looks forth to integrate digitalization and pre-fabrication as an integral part of new age, low carbon oriented architecture.

The design is part of student digital architecture research at The University of Sydney which aims to investigate digital design and fabrication techniques through composite strategies specific to environment and location.


Flexibility is the name of the game in this design, where elaborate leaf-like components constructed from timber will coalesce to form exquisitely singular spatial elements. A group of such spatial elements arranged along a definitive pattern will constitute a completely fabricated housing colony. But the idea is not just limited to industrial pre-fabrication; as a matter of fact it calls for a specifically specialized mode of assembling and construction with regard to the local environment and availability of resources.

The design considerations will also be envisaged from various parametric methodologies including assembling methods such as stacking, aggregation and bundling. So, in effect this unravels the complexity as well as simplicity of a myriad of geometric patterns and forms; some intricately irregular in their bearing and some adroitly symmetrical in their demeanor. The overall visual side of affairs can be quite striking and practical for usage at the same time.

Moreover, it’s not only about aesthetics and circulatory pattern; the designer has also thought of the low environmental impact his conception can has the potentiality to muster. Construction methods, on-site consideration and the mode of this eco friendly architecture is touted to reduce wastes to just 2 percent (from 30 to 40 percent wastage countered in conventional building processes).
