The students’ independent inhabitation during their studies, is one with special features. It has a permanent character (for about 5 years) but also temporary provided that, after some time there will be locomotion to a place of habitation. It usually constitutes the first independent inhabitation (outside family house) for the majority of students.
Inside student’s habitation, mechanisms of usurpation and socialization are being evolved. Research in the framework of the researching project has shown that students’ inhabitation of today, takes effect under difficult circumstances. Most of the times their habitations don’t correspond to their way of living.
During their studies, they inhabit either in dorms or in flats which are not designed for students’ inhabitation. In dorms, a part of privacy is being deprived of, as they are supposed to share some spaces with other students. In flats of apartment buildings, students do have the desired privacy but due to the fact that the flat is not designed for students’ inhabitation, they don’t have the functionality and the suppleness they desire.
Subject of the diploma project is the planning of a student’s habitation complex model. The objective is the exploration and the planning of the contemporary inhabitation so as to content needs of functionality, utterance, collaboration and privacy of today’s student.
The approach method was based on the consequents of the researching project and also on the results of a research that took place among students. The research was based on floor plans, made by students, in a pattern of vertical and horizontal lines, which create 8*8 units. The floor plans contain the desired spaces and the desired usage of spaces, for each student. The intention was the conception of each student’s desires in regard of habitation’s spaces and suppleness. The data collection of the desired usages was the starting point of the plastic construction which led to 4 types of inhabitation. The student, himself, will administer the desired usages and spaces by using guides that subsist in the floor. Walls are going to be placed in these guides, afterwards.
The combination of the types is done due to a scenario which originates interpersonal relations in public spaces of the complex model and restrains students’ privacy inside the habitation.
