CAIM Community Complex, Mount Lofty
Urban sprawl, an increased cost of living, loneliness and the environmental impact of building construction spurred a returned trend in communal living in the 21st century.
An age-old strategy for survival, communal living can be so much more today.
The community complex of CAIM, proposed for Mount Lofty, South Australia accommodates 75 residents in a project of alluring design, derived from the ionic volute. At it’s core, CAIM strives for symbiosis between the public and private spheres to nurture a community.
Noting the weakest point in satisfaction alluding to insufficient privacy, the private quarters at CAIM are significantly larger.
However community areas are still spacious and numerous; for example the Section with Perspective features a large Children’s Play Area with Scott Morrison inside, for consumers’ scale comprehension.
