Beichuan Affordable Housing Projects
The affordable housing project is composed of the resettlement housing for quake-affiliated people and the relocation housing for land-deprived farmers. In a neighborhood organization, the planning realizes open block streets and coherent walking flow, and focuses on the harmony and sense of belonging of the residential community. The house types are designed based on the area provisions of resettlement, which satisfy the green standards of natural ventilation and day lighting, and are compatible with the local economic development level and living habits. In addition, the façade design gives full respect to the local culture, refines the Han-Qiang architectural symbols of the local dwelling houses.
