Housing Association La Balma

The aim of housing association is to ensure a decent and affordable housing to its partners, with a ceiling assessment contribution according to convening and legislation on 7,82€/m2. Also we propose to build a building as refugee of energy poverty and the costs to obtain the housing comfort will be reduce more than 50%. Now we got the opportunity to do it.

From a realistic point of view and attending to resources available, we focused to reduce the construction phase and the use of the building in useful lives, thinking in the final economic impact of the properties.

During the competition phase has been realized a social-economical study of the housing group and the participative process to work and to reach a next proposal, where users and the community plays as a principal role, and the building follows the infrastructure which allow to evolve from 3 fields: neighbourhood, community and housing.
