Modular buildings and modular homes are sectional prefabricated buildings, or houses, that consist of multiple sections called modules. “Modular� is a method of construction differing from other methods of building. The module sections are constructed at an off site (sometimes, remote) facility, then delivered to the intended site of use.


DESIGN CON CEPT


The design concept of the youth hostel is a modular design. For the guest room building, the concept is very simple, which is a 2.5m x 5m basic module unit. The basic module is a private room. The dormitory room is two and three times the area of the basic module. Then combine three room types to form a floor. The first and second floor is a combination of private room and dormitory room. The third floor is only for dormitory room, and in the middle of the building, which is on the fifth floor, there is a common area to encourage the interaction between upper floor and the lower floor. The sixth to eight floor is a repetition of the second to fourth floor.

For the common building, it is too a module design, which is a 5m x 5m basic unit. With extension and subtraction, it forms the common building massing. The reception and lobby is located near the entrance for convenient use. Next is the common area, there are two common areas in the hostel one of them is located on the ground floor and the other is located on the fifth floor. The common area in the ground floor is for public use, there are greenery and bench for people to

use and relax. For the fifth floor there are a large open space for guest to have activity or to relax. For daylight design, the longer south faรงade can have more sunlight at winter time to keep the building warm and save energy. Secondly, the park view is located on the south side, so the window is mainly located at the south faรงade. For the east and west faรงade there are less windows to reduce heat gain as east and west is harder to shade.


SITE AN ALYSIS

The building mainly facing west so it can gain advantage of the Winter Sun

The north and east facing facade so it can block the surrounding Noise

Slope on site can be an advantage or a threat

The shape of the building can let summer wind enter the common area and redirect winter cold air


FLOOR PL AN The design of the guest room is a modular design, the bed and toilet that is used in the private and dormitory room are the same module. Because of the light weight bamboo bed, the modular bed can be relocate at any time, to be add or remove. The private room used two bed module and a toilet module. The guest room is 2.5m x 5m and there is a semi-outdoor space for people to enjoy the park view on the south. For the dormitory room, there are four to six bed. The room is 5m x 5m and there is a large outdoor space for people who enjoy the outdoor space. The guest there can enjoy the south park view too, same as the private room. Dormitory Room
