• This presentation outlines the evolution of landed residential typology developed in our practice over time reflective of the myriad changing conditions and growth of the society and nation.
• The evolution sees the transformation of rudimentary linked house typology - built based on speed and quantitative approach to solving housing problems of the nation - to building community based on qualitative appraisal of the environment and its sustainability.
• The visuals are mapped through the basic principles that their manifestations themselves have seen evolution over time, namely: community _ identity _ safety & security _ amenity _ sustainability
• With growing wealth brings choice and qualitative appraisal from the people
• With changing family and tenancy makeup brings sophisticated and new hybrid, evolutionary typologies
• With greater awareness in health and well-being brings active lifestyle and connectedness to the outdoor considerations
• With rising crime rate defensible space principles become relevant again in addressing safety and security issues
• With traffic congestions we integrate building design with public transport and explore personal mobility solutions, whilst accessibility to local amenities and services become more important and integrated
