Tailor-made starter homes (concept 1828)
Every residential building design is unique and should be designed like a tailor-made suit according to VOA. In the case of a community-living building, this starts with the definition of the residential program. The basis is a compact efficient dwelling, supplemented with spaces and amenities to share. The amenities to be added and integrated into the design are determined with the help of a "focus group". The focus group consists of future residents between the age of 18 and 28: the target group of 1828-Group. For this group, affordability of living, the availability of homes and preventing loneliness are important issues. This community living concept aims to contribute to a solution to these issues.
For this specific location rentable studios, flexible work spaces, and collective facilities such as a living room, communal kitchen, outdoor space, bicycle parking facilities, a laundry room, and an event space are considered. The target group's desire for these spaces became evident after several focus group meetings. The target group wishes to experience a sense of homecoming with a welcoming atmosphere. The shared spaces should feel like an extension of their home, where a distinction is between relaxing and seeking activity.
