Shifting Hybrids, Hina Jamelle

By allowing units to cross one another so as to provide shared access, the work-life separation unravels itself, forcing a hybridization where users are able to access a work environment and a private living space directly from every unit.

This proposal aims to set a new standard for housing in which living and working are interlaced. By allowing units to cross one another so as to provide shared access, the work-life separation unravels itself, forcing a hybridization where users are able to access a work environment and a private living space directly from every unit. The proposal is able to provide 35 rental units, ranging in area from 350 to 750 SF, and 20 work units, ranging in area from 650 to 900 SF. Hybridization occurs by way of a split level logic, interlacing live and work units into a cohesive aggregation which acts cyclically in that it is able to be assembled and transformed to suit its user’s needs. While hybridization occurs, on one hand, within the private realm of the proposal, it also bears a public dimension formalized in exhibition and break out space flowing throughout the proposal, providing tenants the opportunities to present their work in whichever way they desire.
