Lepu Alang Masterplan


The design starts from a single module that is combined from two typical housing units, each with 114 square metres. The module is stacked in different orientations and positions to form the tower. One apartment is formed by four towers with two lift cores, housing a total of 96 units. The key of the design is the pitched roof of each module created as stepped farming and stairs for vertical access. Not only does it give a more expansive common area for the residents to interact and greet each other, it also provides an airy space for vertical transportation instead of relying on the conventional staircase covered with walls.


The in-and-out form created by the organised stacking of modules facilitates natural ventilation and invites natural lighting into the common roof-seating area. Greenery is also inserted into alternate levels of the apartment to introduce nature into the multi-storey design. The roof farming is able to bring additional income to the households and allow children to play outdoors after school. As such, the proposed housing is expected to address social concerns in the neighbourhood and improve the well-being of the residents.

ENHANCING SOCIAL COHESION The concept of roof-stairs and stepped roof farming is an attempt to engage the community in a new way of living. Although it may seem to create less privacy for each household in the apartment as residents can access freely to different levels, this design proposal intends to relook into our need for privacy for a chance to connect with people. Humans’ beliefs and mindsets are very much affected by the way they are brought up. If a child is raised in such connected spaces proposed in this scheme, she/he might have a different point of view about sharing and connecting with people. The bonding of children within a connected neighbourhood has the power to bring the lives of different families together.


WASTE MATERIALS The roof-stairs has to be done with concrete construction. Since Sarawak produces a lot fly ashes as an industrial by- product from coal combustion, the material is recycled to make geopolymer, which can be used to replace ordinary Portland cement in concrete. The project concrete construction, therefore, can help reduce the local waste material.
