Abstract [en]

When the harbour settlement of Holmsund emerged the paternalistic milling society solely built itself around one cause, this generated a closed community consisting of a very uniform population. The impact is still present to the current day, homogenisation is causing individualisation and power is expressed by means of tangible possessions. Holmsunds’ door is closed, this BA proposal wish to unlock the door and leave it open.

In order to accomplish the previously stated the strategic site of intervention is where one is the most responsive, where the daily life happens, where one lives. Modernity and digitalization generates a society where services are moving from physical spaces in the public to rather taking place within the home, thus putting a greater emphasis on the way we live. Not to mention the amount of time and value we invest in living during our lives, constantly craving to settle, to connect our bodies to one physical space. On that account housing will acts as the architectural engine for societal change and serves as the base for this project.

This BA project proposes a housing project where the concept of sharing acts as the key theme. The idea suggests an apartment building which emphasizes the connection with its surroundings by combining public and private functions in a balanced transition and thus generating connections between various people. In more specific terms the building is defined through the means of sharing in various scales by: mixing different users, sharing activities in communal spaces and sharing resources through a reusing facility.
