Transformation of obsolete school buildings into DIY apartments.
The schools, all built around the 1930s, had a similar structure. The class rooms and sports halls allowed for an easy division into 24 housing units.
After a thorough renovation of the school buildings, the families all bought their empty casco space for individual construction.
Within the empty casco, the families created their own homes. krft assisted 8 of the 24 families in their design.
We applied a recurrent strategy: a freestanding box in the space structuring the space, creating extra living space on top and useable storage space within.
The same strategy had completely different results for the different families.
Elle Decor spent a 8 page special on the project in december 2015.
