Purpose and goal

The aim of further developing the concept based on expert and user opinion is met: The concept has been analyzed through workshops with partners with broad expertise. User interviews in 3 housing companies and workshops on needs and business topics have provided a deeper analysis of the needs of users and society. The aim of developing a model for prototyping in 3 housing companies is partially met: additional expertise needed to be engaged, after which a plan for the model´s development in step 2 was prepared. The plan involves prototyping in real cases, linked to 4 housing companies.

Expected results and effects

Step 1 has resulted in a plan for creating a model for increased elasticity in housing. Project activities have resulted in insights of value for the continuation of the project: Needs, problems and effects should be divided into; the Individual, the Housing Company, the Society. Elastic homes should be developed in the form of a model to increase elasticity with regard to needs and resources. The solution is to get Physical Space, Social Relationships and a Co-Business to interact. Desirable effects are better health, integration and participation as well as more sustainable habits.

Planned approach and implementation

3 workshops regarding users / housing companies have been conducted as well as user interviews (hosts: SKB, Sköndal, Telge), 64 participants. 2 WS regarding business / market have been conducted with partners and invited experts (hosts; Ericsson, BoKlok), 36 participants. 5 partners have had meetings for planning and interpreting the results. The reference group has been invited to all WS and participated to varying degrees. The fact that WS has been conducted with various hosts has provided extra knowledge of the partners´ conditions and increased involvement with the hosts.
