Vibrant Neighbourhoods: Innovative affordability at a local level
Can a housing model provide more than just housing?
The proposed housing model is a multi-program, multi-functional Public housing; geared for Low-income Seniors and Low-income Single Parents: two groups of people on the verge of becoming homeless. The combined and shared effects of the emerging cooperation between the two groups of people will enhance both social ties and social capital. The organization of spaces in the housing will provide opportunities for the synergies between two groups of people to materialize spatially.
