From the architect: This undertaking not only addresses the pressing need for affordable housing but places a unique emphasis on the role of collective spaces in enhancing the quality of life for its citizens. The housing complex in Kaohsiung hosts 245 units between 25 and 75 m2, designed for a large variety of users, from young couples to families with children, as well as students, the elderly or people with special needs.

A Paradigm shift in Public Participation
At the heart of Mecanoo's social housing project lies an unprecedented approach to public participation. Unlike conventional models, this endeavour places the power of decision-making directly into the hands of the future residents. By adopting a novel and innovative strategy, users will actively define the programs within the collective spaces. This participatory model ensures that the communal areas cater precisely to the needs, preferences, and aspirations of the community.
