The Floor Plan Manual Housing features 62 architectural competitions, 570 floor plans. It is not only a compilation of all the award-winning projects´ typical floor plans from Zurich 1999 - 2015; it also documents a wide range of innovative floor plan types. On one hand, it challenges and develops orthodox layouts; on the other hand, it examines unconventional concepts and tests their suitability. The floor plan manual presents on 1350 pages more than 1200 floor plans side by side but does not comment on them. This unique compendium invites the reader to discover diverse concepts for living space.
This manual sheds light on every aspect of designing housing. The organization of the living space and the residential building is dealt with systematically, from the breadth, depth, stacking, access to dwellings and the urban ensemble. This revised edition has been expanded with 20 new exemplary projects, boasts an improved structure and has been enriched with a new chapter about the process of design. Housing Design is primarily focused on residential construction in larger entities, such as stacked developments. Because of its wide-ranging approach to the theme, this manual is also useful when designing in low densities and even for the design of an individual house or villa. It provides the tools necessary to analyse the context of residential construction, ranging from large-scale tabula rasa plans to the infill of a gap in an urban elevation. With regard to the tectonics of residential construction, the supporting structure, the envelope, the scenography and the service elements are dealt with in turn, in each case considering the consequences of the choice of material and form for the space and the living experience. The manual pays considerable attention to the relationship between the domestic floor plan, space and how it is experienced.
