Standard Resident Flat
The residents standard flats are based on a tiny home type style. I wanted the flats to be small but perfectly formed with lots of storage space to allow the residents to keep the majority of their belongings with them and not have to put them in storage where they would not be able to access them. The residents can customise certain items to their preference to make the space feel more like they have ownership of it e.g. artwork.
I also didn’t want the residents to feel disappointed when they move into their permanent homes as they will be extremely basic and not luxurious in any way, so a fine balance had to be found with regards to the decor and furnishings.
The walls are double thick to provide good soundproofing and allow the space to remain peaceful even if other residents are being loud.
This is their safe, private space so I wanted it to feel like it.
