The Harbour Community

Its main novelty is that it does not have fixed living quarters of set size, but rather movable walls and sliding doors that can be arranged to create living quarters of different sizes, depending on the needs of the inhabitants. By clustering the wet rooms around the house centre, I have freed the living/working quarters of the functions that usually pin them down. Hence, these can be flexible in size depending on the needs and means of the inhabitants at any given time. The flexibility is assured with movable walls and sliding doors. The central commons and flexible living/working quarters will ensure maximum efficiency of the complex as individual homes. This will also create conditions of dialogue among the inhabitants when living quarters need to be changed.
