This year, the Interior Architectural Design studio II focuses on designing space for living in the city of Bangkok. The studio collaborates with Nomura Real Estate Development Company Limited and Origin Property Public Company Limited providing students with exposure in working together to link education with industry.

This project evolves from an initial personal understanding of space for living, turning it into a space of negotiation by redesigning and reprogramming the interior of given living units. Two types of small space living units have been given as sites for students to reprogram and redesign:

Simplex Unit (3.00 m. Ceiling Height): 28 sq.m. and 32 sq.m. floor area

Duo Space Unit (4.20 m. Ceiling Height): 28 sq.m. and 32 sq.m. floor area

Studio work focuses on developing investigative methods and tools with emphasis on experimentation rather than singular solution. Daily programs are to be studied and investigated. Spatial apparatuses are invented to support needs of inhabitants. The project has been broken-down into three stages as seen below:

Stage 1: Data collection and exchange of mappings

Stage 2: Production and alteration of working model, exploring potentialities of living in small space

Stage 3: Proposal to accommodate inhabitants and their activities in small space
