2080 Home

The future of housing is not entirely machine, but built upon the architecture of human-human negotiation, communication, supported by machine, thought among the community. 

Pareto Principle theorized that for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. 2080 home adopts Pareto 80:20 rule and in principle, it consists of the follows:- 

1. In each 1 of indoor space, there are 5 outdoor open terraces 

2. There is 1 privately owned open space or void and 5 open terraces 

Architecturally, indoor and outdoor fulfills a 20:80 ratio where:- 

1. The 80% outdoor terrace spaces are defined by the decision of 20% indoor space user 

2. The 20% indoor spaces quality are determined by 80% outdoor terrace spaces 

Cabin brief info Indoor: 18 sqm 
Outdoor terrace: 90 sqm 
Site: 92 sqm 

8 Green Innovations and Strategies 

1. Fostering negotiation and communication among neighbor 

Masterplan in honeycomb grid allows future cabin logistics and transportation that habitant can later acquire their new cabin units as new home or workplace. The system encourages them to acquire cabin farther away from their first cabin, so that neighborhood interaction tendency is created every day when they commute and walk from cabin to cabin. 

2. Site learning, neighbor learning 

During site occupation, habitant learns their site by deciding their own cabin orientation and position of 5 open terrace pedals. It allows them to negotiate and communicate with the builder during post-construction of secondary structures, and they can decide on forming shared spaces with their neighbor with their facing of an open terrace and open airspace. 

3. Building spaces with neighbor 

Each of private cabin unit is capable of contributing its 5 pedals open terrace spaces to form shading devices to the public pedestrian network. Each open-air space privately owned, can be decided to face other open-air spaces of neighbor to form bigger shared, green spaces for communal activities like kids play area, badminton court, plantation area and gathering spaces. 

4. Sun path, passive energy responsive cabin 

Shaped like 5 pedals flower, 2080 home responses to Malaysia sun path diagram and can be oriented towards sun shading manner. From that, most of the wall is shaded from hot sun angle and glass panel, casement window and glass louvers can be installed to bring decent wind and natural daylight into the interior spaces. Jack roof is proposed for passive cooling purposes. 

5. Half prefab, half in-situ 

To foster human-human interaction through time for community building, a half-machine, half man-made architecture is proposed. 2080 home is a prefab metal framework that requires an on-site installation of open terraces, walls, doors, windows and jack roof. 

6. Tectonic 

Heavy-duty hinges are installed to allow rotation of 5 pedal-liked metal frames to form desired open terrace or shading devices of habitant, supported by in-situ steel support during post-installation. 

7. Indirect expansion in the organic masterplan for community building 

Site masterplan consists of 2 rows hexagonal width of the pedestrian network that allows cabin logistic, and transportation on site. Habitant is encouraged to acquire the unit for expansion which is farther from their first cabin home. In such doing, walking to their second home, or to work has high neighbour interaction tendency that shapes community. 

8. Creative framework - 5 pedals 

5 open terraces are pre-installed as a metal framework that allows post-installation customization to the choice of habitant. Steel trellis, concrete platform, garden terraces, or by simply doing nothing to the steel frame to act as a big tree space can all be done. 

The technology of 2080 home will support and provide a creative framework to habitant in order to be ecological self-sustained. Its architecture gives an opportunity to habitant to form human-human learning, encourage talking and thinking among neighbour. There, a green and sustainable ecosystem is built.
