B[E]Long

 

The ideology of B[E]Long inspired to become the future living style within the city. We aim to provide a community-based quarter which focuses on the pure concept of sufficient, efficient and necessity living.

 

The project envisages that with the cost-efficient program, the integration of key communities bond within the social environment will lead this single dwelling community into a blueprint for future dwelling especially in the suburb area of Malaysia.

The project intends to build a home for a family of seven. Modular structures were designed provided with spaces like verandah, living room, bedrooms and kitchen. Each structure is 10ft by 10ft which allow the extension in future to be carry out easily.

 

The building can be transformed into other usage once it is extended or multiplied. The main material used is steel in order to fasten to construction process sinceit is only going to be constructed by 20 unskilled workers within 3 days. Local material like recycled timber with partition are used as well.
