Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to suggest changes and improvements to youth housing, bothsocial, educational and environmentally and also look at alternatives to cheap construction ofbuildings so that the rents and production costs don’t increase so much or even possibly leadto a decrease in costs. This survey is done for Lulebo to get a better insight on what studentswant for housing and what features students ask regarding future student housing and howmuch they are willing to pay for these features. The aim of the thesis is through research andprevious studies to presents a complete design proposal in the form of student housing thatcan be implemented in a house designed for them. The design proposal must includedrawings, concept art, and the result until the final proposal and description of theaccommodation.To get the information what students are demanding for in a new student housing a survey hasbeen created to be distributed to the three different groups of students (high school students,first-year university students and final year university students). The questionnaire wasdesigned with quantitative method and the results are presented in bar graphs and text whichcan then be analyzed to be interpreted and used in the design. A panel was planned to obtain aqualitative result that can strengthen the results of the survey while contributing to otheraspects such as the opinions and thinking of the persons.A literature study of basic theories was also designed. This contributed to different outcomesmeasures that can reduce costs, but also how students are affected by their home environment,etc. Some of these theories were used in the development of the student apartments andhousing design.According to the survey, the average person who responded to the survey was 18 and 21 yearsold, single and lived in either a student apartment or a regular apartment. The average personspends most studies in group rooms, followed by the library. Those students that study athome always do it in the kitchen, followed by the bedroom with a desk in there. These areasshould have good comfort and light. He/she may even consider having handicappedaccessible home that would facilitate a visit from an acquaintance who is disabled. Theaverage person would rather have a two rooms and a kitchen followed by a one room andkitchen and double room apartment. The bed is an important feature that will take up muchspace in the apartment (they want to sleep in a hundred and twenty beds standing on thefloor). The average person does not want to have extra sleeping space for people who sleepover.The average person would also want the home located near school; have good transport linkssuch as bus stop, grocery store, etc. The laundry and bicycle room should be close on hand inthe house. The average person can even think of being more eco-efficient by scrap sorting andsave on electricity and hot water. It is also important that the apartments have reasonable rent.
