Architecture illustration with text The habitat 2.0 thumbnail

When a student migrates to another city or state to pursue higher education, finding a suitable accommodation that lies a proximity to the institute and offers basic amenities is a primary concern. On campus, housing has a limited capacity and therefore these living conditions come with a strict set of restrictions: lack of physical space, quality food, and basic necessities.

Habitat 2.0 is a competition that invites all designers to design an innovative Student Community Living in India. A Student Community Living concept is something we are trying to achieve through this design brief. A community where a student has a range of living options to choose from, as per their requirements, an accommodation that comes loaded with complimentary facilities such as fitness centres, laundry services, air conditioners, food courts, play grounds, gardens & much more. A community which respects individuality but at the same time is very flexible – such that it blurs the threshold between indoors & outdoors. A community that is not only aesthetically pleasing but is also functional, sustainable & fulfills the physical & psychological needs of students.

The challenge is to design a quality and innovative student housing building in India for 140 student occupants having following unit types with all individual & shared amenities:

20 Studio Units
20 Double Occupancy Units
20 Four Student Sharing Units
