A flexible modular construction kit to create more high-quality living space within shorter periods of time: Using this concept, Koschany + Zimmer architects KZA and the module manufacturer ALHO from Friesenhagen, Germany, have been selected as winners of the Europe-wide call for tender concerning serial construction.
Awarding authorities were the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community and the General Association of the German housing industry (GdW) in cooperation with the Federal Association of German architects (BDA) and the construction industry. The common system design of KZA and ALHO will now be integrated into a framework agreement for the construction of residential buildings in serial and modular design.
Housing companies that belong to the GdW and its member associations can use the concepts from now on to create living space that is needed urgently all over Germany. The first projects will probably be implemented in 2019.
