Intertwine

Hong Kong is well known as an international city which is one of the densest city in the world. People are living in crammed spaces. Architects are constantly finding way to reuse the residue spaces. Because of the scarcity of land in Hong Kong, there are a lot of skyscrappers that makes the city unique. Yet, what if all the land is being used and crammed in the urban district?

INTERTWINE is an housing experiment which aims to tackle the lack of land issue and provide alternatives living in dense cities like Hong Kong.

The initial idea was to challenge whether slope is friendly to do a housing prototype, utilize the sloping conditions and investigates possibilities to move housing from densely area into mountain. Besides, it also challenges how landscape can coorperate with necessary/essential public/communal programs for the residents so as to create a self-sustainable housing prototype.
