CPH Village is made possible by more flexible zoning laws that should help meeting the increasing demand for affordable housing. Especially students are struggeling to find a place to stay in Copenhagen, hence these containers will be “micro-shelters” for students with prices only 20-30% below market average.
The communal area of CPH Village is complety covered in sustainable wood, hiding a special ventilation system that maintains a healthy indoor climate. As all interior is designed to keep the container’s transportability feature in tact, the student village can be dismantled, relocated and rebuilt within no more than a day.
CPH Village aims to create a space “that reflects your way of living” for young urbanites by organizing community events and providing an urban garden on the container roofs. When you are lucky to get a spot in this community, you can also use their additonal services, such as a discount on groceries and bike repairment.
CPH Village is another interesting idea, similar to 3D-printed social housing in France, that can be scaled up worldwide to solve the urban housing shortage.
