This is a cardboard model used to illustrate The Habitat design.

All aspects of this design is open for revision, however we see this structure as meeting the following objectives;

  • Using recycled Materials
  • Rapid build and roof installation
    • Permitting Projects to start and continue rapidly
    • Protect participants from Sun and Rain
  • Minimise work required to lock up stage (top Floor)
  • Provide the total volume and floor space to permit multiple projects
  • Provide the total volume and floor space to provide accommodation, workshop, gallery and studio requirements.

Basic Structure

1. Basic Structure-small.jpg

The basic structure of the Habitat formed using four (4) x 40" or 12meter High Cube Shipping Containers Four (4) Additional posts will be welded into the Ground Floor Containers, one container width from each end, on the inner walls.

Basic Structure - With Roof

2. Basic Structure and Roof-small.jpg

This roof will enable work to continue such as top floor walls and flooring to take place in all weather. This Roof design is likely to change to accommodate more solar collection, small southern clerestory windows (for light not sun) and a Viewing deck on the southern container roof.

Addition of internal floor, and Verandas

Verandas to extend additional 1.6 meters to make verandas 4m in depth and 12meters long. The Internal floor will include a stair case, and or light wells to the ground floor.

Next Steps

You can see from the above "Top complete" that substantial shelter is now afforded. Eventually additional northern and southern walls will be installed at ground level. The Project intends Evolve "the Habitat" from this condition going forward, see "Evolutionary Design".
