VOCATIONAL DORM

This project is about converting a three story house, previously used for offices purpose, into the hostelling compound as a temporary housing for the people working in the IT area, and overall young travelers. The location of the property is outside of the city center, but close to the train station and in the heart of the city´s business area, mainly occupied by growing IT companies.
As the result of precise space replanning, there were created: 6 small apartments with bathrooms and open type kitchens on the 1st and 2d floors, and 2 rooms with the shared bathroom on the 3d floor.
According to the initial condition of the building, there was only one sanitary point on the fist and second floors of the building. Taking into consideration low investment and amortization cost requirement, some of the office modular ceilings were preserved and the low-cost materials and furniture were used.
The outcome is an easy going environment for the young people to share during the stays of few days to few month in the city of Lviv, Ukraine.
