01/05/2017 - FARO is participating in the Innovation Challenge Dwelling, together with the other members of Team 3: Woontij, Fooq, LA4Sale, and BDO consultancy. You can now vote for the project here!
The Innovation Challenge Dwelling is organized by the Blomberg Society and the Vanenburg Bestu-urdersoverleg Woningcorporaties. With the slogan ‘Change the games’ seven teams started working towards answers to seven different questions. All team are multi-disciplinary and create connections between domains, frontrunners, fresh thinkers, innovation parties, and science. The most innovative answer will be rewarded with the Corporation Award 2017.
Team 3 has been working on the Innovationquestion: ‘What are the core elements for affordable sus-tainable dwelling space that is suitable for an unknown future demand for dwellings, and that will have created value for the ‘empty space’ when the dwellings are removed?’ The answer: housing corpora-tions can easily adjust for changes with a flexible and moveable part of the dwelling stock. A concept that easily connects to societal demand, that offers sustainable and high quality dwellings, a much safer investment for housing corporations, and a way to enrich the landscape of Texel instead of harming the landscape. A concept that is not only possible to deploy on Texel, but that could also be a good solution for other locations.
