Special features of the production of modular timber framed construction affect design mainly in the scales of apartments and apartment buildings. When an apartment can be modified to suit the user's needs, a building's service life and the degree of utilisation increase. This study examines the possibilities of adaptable modular timber framed housing construction using the principle of adaptable zones and examples of three placement methods of modules as a tool. The analysis is supported by a large variety of modular timber framed apartment studies and their adaptable variations.
The study also attempts to better understand – regardless of the production method – the appreciation of residential environments and seeks to find an interpretation of how the built environment can be developed on the basis of residential preference studies. In addition, the study analyses the potential benefits of modular timber framed construction for realising residential environment preferences.
The study combines practical design and theoretical analysis. The study has incorporated two case designs, of which one modular timber framed housing block in central Kokkola is introduced. The aim of the study is to both determine necessary areas of development regarding modular timber framed building construction from the viewpoint of architectural and housing design; and to function as a resource for ideas and knowledge regarding the design of modular timber framed housing blocks.
