The focus of the project is the Holburn Junction, located close to the city centre of Aberdeen to design social housing.
Aberdeen aims to increase its population by 28% by 2037 and create a successful City Centre where people aspire to live, because the oil industry is decreasing currently and Aberdeen has to maintain its economic position. In the best-case scenario, this will lead into a thriving, dynamic commercial City that will reflect the prosperity and opportunity that already exist in the area and will contribute in the North East of Scotland.
Comparing how people lived a century back to now, we can establish a pattern that people tend to live more isolated by themselves now. However a sense of community has positive effects on a good living environment. The focus is a Multigenerational House to counteract cluster living that will enhance the interaction between various user groups.
