HyperApartment Complex

Description

The HyperApartment Complex is a novel approach to urban housing. It is mostly built using the 369 Pattern Building system. With a few standard apartment room plans, tens of unique apartment floor plans can be generated that can meet various site and customer requirements. The core structure that holds the apartment units of the complex together is made from Kerto LVL. This structure contains a central column that has the staircases and elevator shafts, and also the corridors branch outform this central column and connect to the apartments. The main feasibility for using Kerto LVL is because of the strength properties and flexibility in design that promote better structural integrity and rigidity. This allows larger and higher structures to be built with structural safety as the prime goal. The use of wood in the interior also allows the user to experience a comfortable and beautiful wooden interior as they move through the corridor to their apartment. A new standardised bathroom unit was designed for the 369 Pattern Buildings system is also mostly made of Kerto LVL. This is because this structure also needs flexible dimensions for a better design fit into the predefined 369 module volumes. The bathroom also needs to be structurally strong on its own to survive its weight when it is being transported and being forklifted into the designated place into the 369 modules before the final connections are made.

Key benefit

Reduced construction waste, low cost, easy and fast design / building process, reduced energy consumption, efficient urban housing

Material list

Kerto LVL, wooden framing, nails/screws, L-steel, mineral wool

Ecological values

Wood as a primary material in construction is very sustainable and eco-friendly and its high availability in countries like the Baltics and Nordics makes it a very attractive choice. Due to most of the main assembly taking place within production centres, modular structures waste minimal material and most of what normally ends up as waste discarded on-site can be recycled and reused. The partially assembled nature of modular buildings means they take significantly shorter to construct. This results in a minimal consumption of energy and fuel for construction machinery and logistics. This also reduces noise pollution and daily traffic around the construction area. The whole construction process can thus be well optimised for minimizing the use of resources and energy and producing minimal waste that cannot be reutilized for a form of circular manufacturing. Apartments are the most efficient urban housing solution and modular construction is one of the most efficient solutions for construction. The HyperApartmnet Complex marries these 2 properties together to produce a solution that is pushing the boundaries of neo and green architecture to tackle the worldwide urban housing problems in the most efficient and effective way possible.
