"A Home Away from Home" competition: "Thuis in de Stad" (At home in the city) entry.

In the context of the competition launched in the Netherlands for urgent housing solutions for refugees, our proposal “Thuis in de Stad” (At home in the city) suggests a prefabricated housing system to be applied in existing vacant office buildings by stripping down their facades and adding plug-in housing units made with CLT prefabricated wooden panels, dismountable and recyclable. Those panels are adaptable for different type of buildings. An EPDM waterproof recyclable facade finish protects the wooden temporary units from weathering.
