Home 21New social responsibility
The project "Home 21" is characterized by the fact that it formulates an affordable housing offer for a target group that could hardly be supported in the subsidized new housing construction - such as formerly homeless and homeless women with a migrant background and their children. The IBA_Wien supports this experimental housing with an accompanying research. This is to investigate the cohabitation and the emergence of the neighborhood.
The "Home 21" project is the first residential building in Vienna to be completed as part of the 2016 immediate-aid program. The objective of the program is the construction of 1,000 housing units in system and lightweight construction in order to meet the increased demand for affordable housing as quickly as possible.
A rent of € 8.30 per square meter including running costs and furnishing, no financial contributions, compact floor plans and the housing allocation by the Fonds Soziales Wien, Caritas, the Obdach association and Wohnservice Wien, make "Home 21" a living space in which a diverse population, even with low incomes or in precarious living conditions, finds a modern living space.
The housing offer is supplemented by a socially and commercially used ground floor. There, additional space for a parent-child unit of Caritas with training rooms and games room can be found, and a so-called "Single Room Appartment Cluster" offers small and supervised apartments for erlderly people with disabilities. In addition, the living partners support the residents and promote activities to create a good neighborhood.
