Collective Transformation:Cooperative Housing in Existing Stuctures
MetadataShow full item record
Living together collectively demands a new way of shaping spaces, and the limits of the existing situation can open up for interesting spacial proposals. On site there are threebuildings from two different time periods. By transforming them into cooperative housing and introducing a new tower, they form a more dense urban quarter. The project is about living together in different ways and to create a place where people are able to share different functions such kitchens, workshop and outdoor space. Everyone rents a private room or flat and gains easy access to common functions they maintain together as a community.By introducing a diverse group of people and the possibility to build your own home, the project becomes an experiment on how to live more socially through preservation.
