Maximised livability in a micro-home
Home-hunting in the city has become increasingly challenging due to soaring real estate prices and rents, and a shortage of smaller flats.
As low-income groups struggle to find accommodation they can afford, the City of Copenhagen and the social housing organization KAB joined forces. They approached Vandkunsten Architects with the task of developing a small living unit at a monthly rent of around €430 for about 30m2, including kitchen and bathroom.
Basisboligen (the Basic Living Unit) is a concept that currently includes three different unit types, all constructed as prefabricated box modules. These types can all be developed as units for singles, couples or room mates, and shared facilities can also be added to meet local conditions.
Project name: Basisboligen – Minimal Housing Concept
Client: KAB and City of Copenhagen
