Title: Standardized densification with concept house Author: Oskar Sundberg, Bachelor of Science in Engineering with architecture , Faculty of Engineering LTH at Lund University Supervisor: Radhlinah Aulin, Department of Construction, Faculty of Engineering LTH at Lund University Rikard Nilsson, Department of Construction, Faculty of Engineering LTH at Lund University Exminer: Stefan Olander, Department of Construction, Faculty of Engineering LTH at Lund University Background: Already in the late 19th century, the population growth in the cities began to increase. To densify cities existing urban areas was previously considered inappropriate and instead an expansion of the cities was encouraged. Today, the urban sprawl is being questioned and the benefits of densification are taken into account for a more sustainable urban development. Research questions:
- Is it possible to achieve a more sustainable urban development through densification? - What are the advantages and disadvantages of standardize city densification?
- Is a solution with concept houses with different designs applicable in practice? Purpose and goals: The purpose of this thesis is to study the prerequisites for a concept house with a choice of design for densification projects. The goal is to provide solutions that include different design choices that are recommended to use within the various components. Method: This study will use qualitative methods with the purpose of gaining a understandings of densification in city areas. The study is based on a literature study and three case studies where qualitative interviews and observations are used to collect information. Conclusion: - Theoretically, urban densification is a good option for achieving a sustainable urban development. However, the study determines that it is hard to identify the consequences that may arise in practice. The conclusion can, nevertheless, be drawn that the observed cities of, Malmo¨, Lund and Kristianstad, can be densified with the intention of a more sustainable city.
- With well-conducted observations, the study has developed a range of design choices to a standardized building with the potential to architecturally fit into many different urban structures. - A selection of different designs on a standardized building enables a dialogue between the involved stakeholders, regardless of their previous knowledge of construction projects, to be carried out at an initial stage.
- The study has not examined the economic aspects, but the analysis indicates that the choice of building architecture can result in a cost increase. Thus, the purpose of a lower total cost of the project, compared to the location-based, can be lost. (Less)
