dc.description.abstractHousing demand has been a long running issue in Auckland. Shortages, combined with the rapidly growing population have caused a steady increase in average house prices. High-income households are not affected by this phenomena, leaving the low and middle-income households in a dire situation. Affordability, population and demographic change, dwelling size, and housing intensification are four factors that influence architectural approaches to a resolution of this housing crisis. This thesis focuses on developing an unconventional housing model that incorporates greater compactness and transformability than usually considered in standard paradigms. These two concepts will be explored with the intention that they will provide an affordable and effective solution to the problem. A high-density development using these concepts will demonstrate the way in which housing for the selected demographic can be provided economically, as well as creating an environment that promotes communality.
