Living Accommodation for Young People. Report of An Exploratory Review.
Allen, Phyllis G.; Miller, A.
The Building Research Station has embarked on a series of case-studies on the provision of living accommodations for single young people in the 15 to 24 age group in England who live away from home because of education, training or employment. An exploratory review of the existing literature on the subject was made. Discussed are some of the results of the review which seem likely to be useful to administrators, managers and designers responsible for various aspects of projects in this field. Areas included are as follows--(1) governmental recommendations for colleges, halls, and hostels, (2) sanitary facilities, (3) utility rooms, (4) means-communal facilities, (5) fittings and furniture in individual rooms, (6) access arrangements, (7) room heating, (8) sound insulation, (9) room size, (10) user experience, and (11) acknowledgements.
