The “StadtBauKasten” can reflect the needs of a wide variety of residential types—from 1-room apartments (e.g., for students or refugees) up to 5-room family apartments and shared apartments for refugees or seniors. The structures are pre-planned to be transitioned, at a later date, from compact refugee apartments into apartments that meet social housing standards. The apartments are grouped together in compact structures; multiple buildings are connected via shared corridors and grouped into ring-shaped or linear ensembles.
