HOME 21 is a system construction, a multifunctional structure and it is also ambitious social housing.
The 250-apartment project is one of the pilot projects under the City of Vienna’s immediate housing program, which it launched in 2016 to meet the rapidly growing demand for low-cost housing. The projects of the immediate housing program must be planned and constructed much faster than would be the case with conventional residential buildings.
The building will function as a residential building and dormitory over the first 10 years of its life cycle, after which a change of use into a commercial building must be possible – at an economically justifiable expense.
HOME 21 optimally exploits the potential of this system. The floor plans follow a strict, very economic grid, which is adapted to both residential use, as well as commercial re-use. The open room structure (room height 2.82m) can be divided differently. (Trans-City)
