Cities of the future will be built upward rather than outward to cope with growing urban populations. When space is at a premium, vertical design serves as a prototype for high-density contemporary urban housing. Winy Maas, the architect in charge of MVRDV, a genius in architecture, also proposed the importance of high-rise wooden buildings in the imagination of future cities! In 2022, wooden buildings will become a new choice for future buildings, providing people with a more environmentally friendly and attractive residential form.

Minimalism

 

Minimalism, with the aesthetics of subtraction, returns to the most basic architectural principles. In minimalist design, the use of color, texture or any other detail is simple and practical, highlighting the basic daily needs of the room, contrasting with the industrial design style, with sharp edges, clear lines, flat roofs and natural materials for the exterior. Match the wall decorations to create a new style.

  • Glass - privacy and translucency at the same time
  • Steel - suitable for more experimental or expressive designs, creating a modern and edgy space

自地自建發包必須自行擔任監工

Buying a house is the life goal of many people. In order to build their ideal home, some homeowners choose to build it on their own land. However, the process of self-building is complicated. Should they build it on their own land and turn it into a turnkey package or do it on their own? How to choose a self-build builder? If you are facing the same choice, this article will tell you the advantages and disadvantages of self-contracting and builder-turnkey, and teach you how to choose a local self-builder to help you build the perfect home.

 

How to choose between self-contracting and builder-contracting? Analyze the pros and cons to find the best option

 

Before understanding the advantages and disadvantages of self-contracting and builder-contracting, let me briefly introduce you to the process of self-construction, which mainly includes architectural design, construction engineering, interior decoration, and acceptance and handover. The roles involved are:architect,interior designer, construction manufacturers, etc., overall it is a very complex and cumbersome construction process.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Self-Built and Turnkey Contracting (Constructor Turnkey Contracting)

 

Self-build and turnkey means that the builder is responsible for the entire construction project, from land assessment, architectural design, license application, construction, supervision to acceptance and handover. In addition to saving the homeowner a lot of trouble , when calling for materials, the builder can also set the price based on quantity and get a cheaper price; the disadvantage isBecause of the additional experience and supervision of experts,The overall cost is also higher than self-contracting.There are also skills in choosing a turnkey contractor.Design beautyIf required, it is recommended that you choose to haveExperience and works,Depend onProfessional architectural design officeLed a professional construction team.

 

Comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of self-contracting and turnkey construction

advantage
  • More freedom in choosing raw materials and manufacturers
  • Lower overall cost
  • Lower burden on homeowners
  • Raw materials are cheaper based on quantity
  • The builder is responsible for the construction results
shortcoming
  • Homeowners bear greater burden
  • You are responsible for your own construction results
  • Overall cost is higher
  • The manufacturer selection needs to cooperate with the builder

 

In summary, the threshold for self-contracting is high. If the homeowner does not have an engineering background, it is not recommended to choose self-contracting to avoid risks such as project delays, poor construction, or even failure to meet regulatory standards, which will incur more costs.

建築成本2021如何估算?

As construction costs have continued to rise in recent years, housing prices in Taiwan have remained high. When buying a house, how do you estimate the construction costs so that you can buy an ideal house at a reasonable price? This article will introduce you to the cost components of building a house, analyze the construction costs for you, and introduce the costs and advantages of self-building to help you build your ideal home.

 

The cost of building a house|4 major elements make up the construction cost

First, we will analyze the composition of construction costs for you, which can be mainly divided into land costs, construction costs, management and sales costs, advertising fees and builder's profits. The following is a detailed introduction for you:

 

Construction cost component 1: land cost

As the name suggests, it is the price of purchasing land. When calculating the cost of land, you cannot just look at the selling price, but you must also considerVolume rate, that is, the floor area that can be built on each piece of land, and then converted into volume unit price. Because the area that can be built on each piece of land is different, the land cost must be accurately estimated based on the volume unit price.

In addition, the proportion of land cost in different regions is also different. The higher the housing price, the higher the proportion of land cost. For example, the proportion of land cost in Taipei is about 70%. In areas other than Shuangbei, the proportion of land cost is about 70%. It is about 50%.

 

Construction Cost Component 2: Construction Cost

建造成本佔建築成本的20~25%

It accounts for about 20~25% of the construction cost, which varies depending on the building materials, building type and furniture equipment. Generally speaking, the construction cost of an elevator building will be more expensive than that of a Toten residence; if the building structure needs to be changed, the construction cost will also be increased. cost. In addition, you can also use the selling price to push back the construction cost. For example, if the local housing price for the same type of building materials is 800,000/square meter, the construction cost is 1/4 to 1/5 of 800,000, which is about 160,000. ~ 200,000 yuan/square meter.

 

Construction cost component 3: management and marketing costs, advertising fees

Management and sales costs include personnel costs, bank interest and miscellaneous expenses that the builder needs to pay; advertising fees are various marketing costs to assist sales, which add up to about 10 to 15% of the construction cost.

 

Construction cost component 4: builder’s profit

Finally, of course, the builder's profit is also indispensable. During the land development, construction and sales period, the builder needs to bear risks such as rising raw materials, changes in the economy, and interest rate increases. Therefore, a reasonable profit is about 20 to 30% of the total cost.

 

In summary, land cost accounts for the largest proportion of construction costs, followed by construction costs, builder's profits, management and marketing costs, and advertising fees. The following is a table for you:

Construction cost componentsTotal cost ratio
land cost50~70%
construction cost20~25%
Management and marketing costs, advertising fees10~15%
Builder's profit20~30%

 

majorarchitectureDesign team, accurately planning self-construction costs|B-STUDIO

After reading the above introduction, we can find that the management and marketing costs, advertising fees and builder's profits alone account for 30 to 45% of the construction cost. Therefore, more and more people choose to build their own homes. In addition to reducing construction costs, they also save less In addition to building an ideal residence within the budget, you can also customize the building appearance, layout, interior design and other projects according to personal needs to create an ideal home environment.

[Self-built dream house] Space corridors are smooth and not stuck! 5 key designs make your home instantly enlarged by 2 times! ?

The flow of movement in the home is not only related to the direction of people's movement and activities, but also the quality of life of the whole family in the future. Old houses usually have long corridors that consume space, long and numerous balconies, and incomplete functional planning. Based on living habits, Let’s plan the moving routes. "Moving route planning" breaks the status quo of poor established space and makes the space corridors smooth and free of obstructions. What key points should be paid attention to when planning the moving routes? What should we consider to make the moving lines smooth and easy to use? Before making changes, the following conditions should be taken into consideration in advance!

human-centered design

 

While pursuing beauty, space design also pays great attention to functionality. It fully embodies the people-oriented design concept and is carried out around all activities of "people", that is, the range of activities during various actions and behaviors: a person passes The standard size is 600mm, and if two people pass through it at the same time, it is 900 to 1200mm (home size). Therefore, when setting the size of indoor circulation lines, the behavior of the area must be considered to calculate the distance, height, and width to create the maximum square footage effect and A sense of vast space.

Convenient access to main routes

The main movement lines are the most commonly used movement lines in daily life, connecting the main routes of different functional spaces. They mainly cover housework movement lines, residential movement lines, and visitor movement lines. The order is arranged according to the frequency of activity of each movement line to shorten the time. Daily moving time not only improves the efficiency of life, but also helps to make the space orderly.

 

(1) Housework flow: Covers the most projects and the most frequently used routes.

(2) Residential route: The daily activity route of the family is mainly based on convenience.

(3) Visitor flow: Avoid disturbing the private space of family members.

Improve efficiency - reduce intersections between routes

 

Contradictions often occur between the various movement lines planned to meet the needs of life. Remember to first confirm which movement line should be given priority, and plan each required space in the order in which it is expected to appear, and try to Reducing the intersections through the main rooms and preventing "blocking" between routes can effectively reduce the occurrence of collisions between users, allowing each area to be divided into independent functional areas, presenting each area with dendritic extension

Comfortable space "sense of distance"

 

The most comfortable distance between family members is when they can freely immerse themselves in personal activities and feel each other's presence.

The living room is connected to the kitchen. When the children come home, they pass by the family members who are cooking, which can further enhance the emotional communication between parents and children.

Change spatial circulation - use sliding door partitions

 

Don’t let doors hinder walking and sacrifice space. Functionally adjust the layout of glass partitions to give the space a sense of lightness and multiple uses, and avoid the cramped and oppressive feeling of traditional partitions. When the door is open, it can introduce natural light and create a broad view; when it is closed, it has a semi-transparent effect and can be used as a study area. Make moving lines more flexible. Although the moving lines should not be too complicated, sometimes consider the style and image of the design, and design S-shaped lines, straight lines, L-shaped lines, and 45-degree diagonal moving lines, which can actually increase the interest of the space.

Fair-faced concrete refers to the precise grouting of concrete by craftsmen, and the placement of special texture formwork such as wood grain formwork and fine plywood formwork. It is completed after the formwork is completed and dismantled. It presents the original natural texture of concrete and is also an expression of the craftsmanship of the craftsmen. Due to the characteristics of being completed as soon as the mold is opened, these walls do not require too many decoration and construction processes, and the decoration of indoor wall materials can be omitted, which reduces construction waste and is more environmentally friendly.

The simple, logical design of the building structure reduces construction waste, energy consumption and carbon dioxide. The plain walls highlight the specific tranquility and delicate texture unique to concrete, illustrating the minimalist aesthetics of Zen Buddhism. Stylish wooden grilles reinforce the rhythm of the design, paired with solid wood panels to create an impression of simplicity and purity with inherent soothing elements hidden in the woods.

The separation from the living room to the courtyard can also be designed to sink slightly to form a natural transition edge. Double the benches in the courtyard to comfortably dine and chat.

with windowReplace the wall - fully capture the beautiful scenery outside the window

 

By using transparent glass instead of solid walls to connect spaces, the transparency of the glass weakens the difference between the inside and the outside. Standing in the kitchen, you can look out at the beautiful scenery outside the window, which makes the line of sight unobstructed, provides ample natural lighting, increases air circulation, and is also natural. The ground enhances the sense of intimacy between areas.

The edge of the terrace surrounds the kitchen, and the open design increases the connection with nature. To make cooking and dining both convenient and comfortable, transparent glass is used as a material to connect the surrounding space, so that the boundaries between spaces disappear and the field of vision is broader. The unique position of the kitchen also allows the space to change with the seasons.

Rooftop Picnic - Break the monotony of everyday life

 

In addition to eating in restaurants every day, sometimes I also want to spend quality time on the rooftop, especially when the epidemic is not over yet, where I can get a pleasant break from daily work. If you install faucets and barbecue equipment on the rooftop, you can have a small picnic on the rooftop, or relax and enjoy a wonderful home-cooked dinner. You can even leisurely enjoy family time playing in the pool or having a barbecue.

capture natural light

 

The building ridges between the buildings are shaded and can still capture the sunlight from the south through the planned stair space on the north side of the building, reflecting, diffusing and diffracting natural light to other spaces. Wooden slats can be used as stairs and partitions, which not only ensures a broad view and natural light, but also provides uninterrupted air flow.

Patio

 

The vertical extension of the patio helps maximize the desired spatial quality and conditions while inspiring a sense of openness and connection to nature as it opens to the sky. The patio located in the center of the building, combined with the grid glass on the facade, provides sufficient lighting and ventilation for several floors, and is planted with abundant plants to create a comfortable and cozy atmosphere.

The supporting steel structure is hidden within the building structure

 

In order to achieve a simple space, the space uses pure white ceilings and walls as the space frame. There are no shapes on the walls. All new supporting steel structures are completely hidden within the thickness of the building structure to maximize the sense of spaciousness. Multifunctional wooden "boxes" are inserted into the large open space to serve as the main storage space.

end view of space

 

Due to the narrow site, there is not enough space for a garden. It is recommended to set up a small internal garden at the end of the first floor space. The upper part of the garden is designed to be light-transmitting and ventilated, allowing good lighting in the morning and a slight cooling effect in summer. . The series of landscapes formed by these gaps and gaps are combined with the Japanese concept of forest bathing, where immersion in nature allows the body and mind to completely relax.

買地自建如何規劃?

2How to find the best architects, construction companies, interior design companies, and construction companies?

Choosing a good manufacturer is a huge factor in the success of self-build, but only after you have a clear understanding of what you want in your renovation. You need to specify exactly what you want, and then find the most suitable contractor for your project. Especially for water-formed buildings, because construction is difficult, you need to find an architect with relevant design experience to make the construction process easier and more rewarding. Best results.

 

3. Can I outsource the contract by myself, find a turnkey contractor or engineering class, and build it myself?

You need to plan the entire process from the beginning because there are so many parts involved in home building, and the sooner you make the decision, the sooner you can order materials and schedule. This can prevent product shortages or unprofessional work shifts from occurring during the process, which will cause you a lot of stress, problems, and delays. The advantage of handing it over to a design and construction company or contractor is that all planning is done The project is planned for you at the beginning, and you can also put forward your ideas and participate in discussions during the process.

 

4. There are many self-built projects, how should I control the budget?

The most important thing is to decide what your "needs" are, based on your budget, lifestyle, culture, etc. When preparing your budget, you should ask a consultant about the "base" cost of a basic renovation project. You may be stuck in wanting to choose more. For the idea of a cheap contractor, if you get an estimate that is significantly lower than industry standards, it is likely that the work will not be progressed properly and there will often be additional work and expense if another trades team is hired to complete the work that has been started! When preparing the budget, set a reasonable budget for each project, reserve subsequent expenses for furniture, interior decoration, electrical appliances, tableware, bed sheets and other household items, legal documents, etc., and reserve 10% to 20% in the total budget as a reserve fund , in order to better control costs.

 

5 I have found suitable products and materials and want to order them myself. Can I do that?

You may inquire about products that you think are more suitable or more favorable than those provided by construction companies and design companies, but you may not be able to confirm the quality, size, suitability, or insufficient supply before ordering. Causing delays and increased costs. A professional design and construction company with long-term cooperation and trustworthy suppliers can help you choose appropriate and high-quality materials and products, install them smoothly, and provide subsequent warranty.

6. What are the processes and sequences for self-built design?

According to the order of priority, decide the design of each step, elevation, 3D drawing ➔ columns ➜ location of load-bearing walls ➜ location and size of doors and windows ➜ space layout ➜ furniture layout ➜ electrical points ➜ toilet location ➜ materials ➜ decoration, combine all the above The design projects are coordinated and completed before construction proceeds.

 

7How should I choose the color scheme for my space?

When you finalize the plans and elevations, you also need to decide on the color palette, such as the color of the floors, doors, windows, roof, bathroom fixtures, wall tiles, etc. It is recommended that you choose from your favorite materials, such as marble, vitrified tiles, wooden tiles, etc., to help you further decide on the color of the floor, as well as comprehensively think about, design and plan the color coordination of the entire room.

At the same time, you can also refer to the neutral-toned Wabi Sabi style that design masters still love, showing a natural style and creating a comfortable living experience: [WABI SABI wabi-sabi style] Recommended colors for home color trends, a comfortable and textured atmosphere not to be missed!

 

8Can I make changes to the design after construction has started?

First confirm and complete all planning processes before starting on-site construction. Once finalized, try to avoid any revisions or changes to the plan, which will delay the construction period and increase work costs. The original design plan is a decision made after long-term thinking and discussion between you and the architect.

 

9How to coordinate the various units? Confirm if your architect and interior designer are the same or different?

If your design and construction teams are different and there is no middleman to coordinate, it will often happen that the structure is modified only after it is completed. The same is true for different types of work. If there is no person responsible for integration, it is easy to inadvertently delay the project. Therefore, in Before the project starts, it is best to hire an engineer or an experienced project supervisor to help determine the scope and schedule of the work in detail with the contractor, and to assist in taking on the important responsibility of advancing the project progress.

 

10How to ensure that the self-built construction is smooth and of high quality?

Self-build, which is fully undertaken by yourself, may not necessarily be able to completely build a dream home that meets your imagination. The design and construction company has rich experience and can help you with complete planning at the beginning of construction, from design to decoration and supervision. At every step, there is no need to worry about any details being overlooked. We will also contact you regularly about the current process to ensure that everything is going according to plan and help you easily realize your dream home.
