CONTENT

REWRITE is a collective residential /office building of the future. REWRITE is a living / work concept within a fixed spatial frame. The REWRITE concept meets the needs of various target groups with a unique lifestyle supplemented by creative entrepreneurs in the complex.

 

REWRITE is a unique collective residential building with shared facilities and caters to the demand for local involvement and collectivity. REWRITE consists of a mix of different housing types that perfectly matches the current demand:

- Small apartment, Small 30 to 50 m2, for housing (almost) graduates.

- Loft Apartments, Medium 50 to 85 m2, for housing of 'single' working residents (home-work units).

- The family apartments, Large 85 to 140 m2, have a least three acceptable bedrooms.

- The spacious luxury condominiums, X-Large 140-300 M2 are fully customized.

 

REWRITE building structure will be divided flexibly with different housing types and communal areas. This areas will present in the building a vegetable garden, a sports and wellness center, a parking lift, heat pumps and solar panels, electric charging stations, etc.

 

REWRITE is also for the creative entrepreneur. That mix up business with innovative concepts on the theme of art and design, craft fair, food and drink. Furthermore it is important that there is enough space for quaint shops, art galleries, open work spaces for artists, original shop-in-shop concepts, you name it. Besides space for shops, galleries and restaurants, REWRITE will host available office space for the creative businesses. Ateliers, workshops, space to meet and work together. No traditional offices.

 

REWRITE is like a 'vertical village' that responds to today's pluralistic society.

The context of the material presented and preformed will be within the architectural design phase and within the technical design phase for a surplus an outdated building that has to be redeveloped and updated for housing of different typologies. Analysis of redevelopments and design detailing will be done from realized projects. Design approach of plan and detail development will be seen through case studies and joint tasks. Case studies will be chosen according to relevance, aesthetics, function and constructability.

 

WORKSHOP (STUDIO/ ADVANCED SKILLS):

During the first week there will be a workshop about transformation. During the workshop we will focus on the art of technical 3d drawings, isometric details and other technical skills to give insight in constructions, building technique and enhance architecture. (ADVANCED SKILLS)

 

Also arrangements will be made for the designteams (between 4-6 students) ; who will lead the team, who does what and planning of the workflow. The outcome has to be; the group functioning as an office. At the end of the day the team will know what to do the upcoming weeks and how the inter-relational lines flow. Also the team will have a clear idea what their endgoal is.

 

DESIGN STAGE (STUDIO)

Within the first four weeks the team will create a design for the redevelopment of a concrete shell of a former office building.  In this phase the student will focus on planning the functions, traffic zones, etc and also focus on the architecture and aesthetics (working scale 1:200). At week 4 there will be a presentation where the design will get it’s approval for further development.

 

TECHNICAL DESIGN STAGE (STUDIO)

After this approval, the team will start focussing on the architecture/ tectonics and detailing. These next 4 weeks will consist of making drawings that focus on technical output combined with an attractiveness wherein architecture, usage and technics will be combined. Besides detailing there will also be a focus on isometrics, architectural/ technical perspective sections, facade fragments.

 

case studies: analysis of various, existing projects and details in past and present situations

 

assignment studio: evaluate, analyse and design the floorplans, facades, main sections at a scale of 1:200 for the given situation/ project.

 

 

 

EXERCISE

The exercise consists of three parts;

- workshop (project start)

- the design stage (first four weeks)

- the technical design stage (next four weeks)

 

For the assignments the following principles will be followed:

Aesthetics

- the role of detailing on an aesthetic level in relationship to the building and its environment

- Contributively details

detailing in relation to formal and spatial ideas, and their influence to an architectural design

detail to detail relationship within the spatial design

- Intensification and Ornamentation detailing

primarily aesthetic detailing, with minimal function

- Transitional detailing

Details that primarily unify the visual composition of major building elements

 

Function

- the various functional levels of detailing

- water

- air

- thermal

- sound

- concept

 

Constructability

- Sequencing

the logistics of detailing constructability and its influence to the building process

- Efficiency- the level at with details are produced and maintained

detail development-

detail to detail relationship in constructibility

- Craftsmanship and standards

accepted standards lifespan and aging

 

LITERATURE

How Buildings Learn, What happens after they’re built; Stewart Brand; Taschenbuch; ISBN 978-0140139969 (also documentary on Youtube)

 

Graphic Anatomy; Atelier Bow-Wow; ISBN 978-4887062788 (facultative)

 

RESULTS

The output of the design teams will be a full design of a redevelopment of a structure of a former building to living/working building (combined usage) including a library of details of the most essential details which cover the architecture and chosen techniques.

 

PANELS

- floorplans (1:200)

- location

- sections (1:20)

- 3d/axonometrics/ isometrics

 

 

All drawings needs to be done in the same way of drawing; one language.

No renders allowed! Enhance the technical drawings in 2D and 3D

 

EXAMINATION

Evaluation: verbal presentation of achieved results groupwise and individual .

 

End term presentation, if possible with a guest critique

 

OBJECTIVES

STUDIO

- working as one team during the project, with room for individual input

- working within a certain role of the designteam that are clear and verifiable

- by working as a team the level of work can get to a deeper level of analysing, designing and detailing

- the individual students give the student the ability to research and build on their own design skills

- spacial quality in relation to context and interior

- being able to cope with a given context/ conversion
