THIRTEEN SOCIAL HOUSING UNITS (COMPETITION WINNER)

 

“We consider collective housing as a carrier of sustainability. Togetherness is to be spacially embedded into the architecture. Such densification furthermore requires air and open space.”

“Adapted living, supported by a well-balanced level of collectivity.”

The recent Flemish assisted care decree promotes independent adapted living supported by (external) voluntary caregivers. It is our duty as socially engaged architects to shape qualitative living environments, while taking into account all practical and spacial needs.
