Purpose and goal

Create a housing architecture congruent with today’s society, environmental goals and needs. Objective: To develop and demonstrate a housing project with integrated mobility services, making private car ownership redundant. Compliance: We have developed a design proposal which suggests mobility as a service to its residents. Drawings have been drafted and a new proposal for a detailed plan with no private parking has been approved by the municipality for this pilot project.

Expected results and effects

The project has exceeded the set goal of creating an innovative housing architecture that supports sustainable travel and changing current thinking, by pushing forward a norm-breaking proposal. A new detail plan has been developed to support mobility services and make private car ownership redundant. In the building, the common areas have been designed with greater care and are expected to enable more sustainable behaviours for the residents. The testbed is expected to be built during face 2.

Planned approach and implementation

A series of meetings with all partners has resulted in collaborative solutions for these complex issues, an increased trust and partner network. The 2 day design workshop resulted in a common understanding and shared learning about our current systems, as well as a new vision of "the new normal". Through new knowledge and co-creative practices, we have developed an architecture with no private parking spaces. The proposal is drafted and has passed through the municipal planning system.
