GSD Core Studio IV: Integrate, Spring 2020
Instructor: Ron Witte
Program: Collective Housing
Site: Green Street, Jamaica Plain, MA
Balconnect proposes a way of dwelling in which the interior is part of a system that goes back outside to the collective life, creating a dynamic in-between space. The boundary between the inside and the outside is softened. Balconnect keeps the inside of units simple and stripped to the utmost essentials – kitchen-dining room, bed and bath, and outsources the recreational, social, and personal spaces to the outside.
