Project Date

A student residence at York University is proposed in the context of a masterplan that enables students to live and move freely within a nomadic framework.  Within this community there are no assigned rooms; students can move around as they like or remain for any duration. This such urban living situation would result in the development of micro communities as people inhabit the site’s various regions. A further development of these resultant communities is speculated in this project. In this quarter, three unique living situations occur in close proximity. Each is designed to offer a unique lifestyle, which is influenced by factors such as people per unit, varying degrees of privacy, differing nearby public programs, and varying opportunities for social interaction. The commune is a residence where all aspects of living are shared with others. The lofts offer good opportunities for those that like to host and entertain. The studios offer a quiet place to hide away.
