In December 2008, 8 of us,2nd year Architecture Students of IIUM involved in a low housing project, in collaboration with Yayasan Zainuddin. We proposed two sets of design and masterplan. Here is one of the proposal from group B. It was a tough project, with sustainable concept, getting rid of all those typical design and dealing a lot with 40k budget allocated for a unit house,nothing much could be done. Just adding some open space in the middle form as courtyard, and proper zoning to control users circulation, probably strong enough to differentiate ours with other typical low cost houses. Theoritically, the courtyard functions very well in this design. And I hope it does if constructed.
