Affordable Housing: Cost-Efficient Models for the Future (Detail Special)
In order to meet the need for affordable flats, convincing models and concepts are required that are cost-efficient, sustainable, and forward-thinking.
-Sandra Hofmeister, Preface of Affordable Housing
Affordable housing is currently in short supply in many European cities. Persuasive models and outlooks for the future are needed if demand is to be met. Yet how can costs be reduced without restricting the quality of housing?
Affordable Housing includes the voices of numerous experienced architects. It documents current outstanding housing developments from all over Europe, which are distinguished by their quality but also by the fact that they were realized with reduced construction costs. Design solutions, deliberate material selection, specific building processes and explicit planning requirements all contributed to this result.
The projects are documented in depth with photos, texts, floor plans and detailed drawings. The introduction includes three essays that examine the topic from different perspectives.
