PATTERNS OF IMPROVEMENT : Analysis of the current space

The Patio Housing is consisted of small housing units organised around a central patio. The houses have residents of different ages. Each user uses the 'common' space in different way. The youngest child of a single mother who lives there ( 1 ) uses every corner of the patio in order to play.Most of the residents have built their own kitchen and toilet/shower room in their houses. Despite that the old lady ( 8 ), needs to use the outdoor toilet/ shower room throughout the day as she couldn't built one in her house. This fact makes her living conditions, inappropriate. Another important fact is the use of the common space. At the moment, the common space doesn't function as a good common space that can improve the living conditions and the bond between the patio's residents.
