Hi, my name is Akim Makumbi.
Welcome to the UCLan Architectural Technology final year degree show and review.
My final year design project proposals explore the implementation of sustainable approaches in multi-generational residential design through building materiality, environmental consideration (project site activity and building envelope assembly) and biodiversity.
The aim of the project is to reach a design resolution produce an inclusive, biophilic, modular house for a multi-generational family in order to help develop a sense of unity, community and empowerment within domestic residences and homes by project completion.
The design scheme and approach for the project shall comprise implementation of passive design themes such as green architectural roofs, interior communal open spaces (courtyard) and modular/prefabrication wall systems.
The final design proposals may also allow future flexibility in material maintenance and performance to accommodate and meet the ever-changing demands and spatial requirements of the end user.
All in all, the presented project proposals aim to be sustainable with a housing strategy in consideration to allow affordability and comfort.
