As part of the Baden-Württemberg Housing Initiative and its component “Innovative Housing BW – Exemplary Projects,” the Ministry of Economics is promoting innovative and at the same time transferable approaches to affordable housing. Housing Minister Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut explains: “The six (out of 60) selected projects reflect the enormous innovative power in the state and the multifaceted nature of the field of community-oriented and affordable housing. They add important thematic focus areas to our statewide ‘showcase’ of pioneering and transferable housing projects.” The grant program addresses the interlocking issues of affordability and innovation in housing. “The ‘Exemplary Projects’ are an important component of our Innovativ Wohnen BW sponsorship. We want to use them to develop a pool of ideas and thus create role models for successful implementation that is worthy of imitation, as well as to promote the all-important communication and networking between the players,” added the minister following the conclusion of the multi-stage selection process. The call for projects for the second funding tranche, launched in summer 2020, comprises a funding volume of five million euros. The funded projects include various implementation-oriented and transferable approaches of both a conceptual and structural nature.
The VOLKSWOHNUNG housing association and Kopvol architecture & psychology have set their sights high in their research and development project. Together, they will develop design criteria and architectural concepts for subsidized housing construction in their multi-year project ‘The human being in focus – architectural psychological findings and their implementation in subsidized rental housing construction’, which has been approved for funding and which places the human being as a factor of healthy and sustainable construction at the center of planning and design.
