Wohnen in Hochdahl / Integrative Living

This concept of a housing complex combines the population\'s wish for a privately owned home with the idea of integrative living.
The new kind of housing has to be able to adapt to the constantly changing ratio of families, singles of every age and couples, and also has to take into account their different needs.
In order to guarantee this flexibility, the housing complex consists of individual modules of various sizes which are arranged on a grid.
The variable use is reflected in the composition of the modules and in the outer form of the building.
