Collective Nesting: Urban Housing Prototype

Project by Julia Sedlock

Designed for a generic site in Chicago, this project proposes a new form of collective urban habitation. A system of nests and perches offers retreat into isolation and inner-life on one hand; exposure and social-life on the other. Nests are warm, cozy, private, small and static. Perches are open, airy, light, social and flexible, and exist along a gradient of sharing and accessibility, depending on individual, family and community needs.

LEVEL 3: Private Nest
Individual ownership; quiet, intimate & introspective

LEVEL 2: Territorial Cluster
Kitchen & terrace; private entry, visual connection to immediate neighbors, views of terrace & city; compact & efficient

LEVEL 1: Collective Perch
Open, flexible, differentiated activity areas, “flex space”, visual & acoustic connections

Sectional Perspective
