Space-S, a social housing estate in Eindhoven in the Netherlands was named a Silver Award! The residents - including people with disabilities and living with autism - have been an integral part in the initial design, development and management of this housing project.
This collaborative project designed and developed by Eindhoven architects’ firm (Inbo), the housing association Woonbedrijf and the future residents, offers high-quality affordable housing delivered and an inclusive community. The project is located on the former industrial base of electronics giant Philips.
Space-S is a successful example of a project that embraced the principles of community-led housing to apply them to social housing development.
