A temporary residence, open spaces to the territory, a restaurant and commercial activities: common places to share, live and build together
The main challenge of the project is giving a concrete answer to an increasing demand for social housing.
Luoghi Comuni project has renovated an unused building to turn it into a temporary residence, to create an example of a mix of functions linked by social innovation and welfare. It is a temporary solution for different kind of users: people in unstable economic situations, tourists or students. The project is developed around a central core represented by a temporary residence (for a period of one day to a maximum of 18 months), alongside other activities and services.
