The Housing Solution In The Netherlands.......

Recommended Posts

Mostly used as student accomodation I don't think the architects have suggested they are a long term housing solution. Still if you lived in London and could buy one for £20k?

They are not meant as a long term housing solution. They are for FTB who only plan on living in them for a few years then moving on elsewhere.

I strongly agree with this. Not everyone wants or needs a big house, and it it's very efficient in terms of land use. They'll cost less to heat, light, etc. At £20K, people could pay them off quickly and then start saving for whatever they wanted in the future.

my god.

2006 and many, many years after the industrial revolution and 2 massive wars and whats the best we can come up with for human living space ? a beehive.

a 1600c mud hut had more room.

400+ years of development and this is what we come up with ?

+ some financial squatter in kent makes a mint from 4 random nothern families he doesnt even know - and thats ok ?

I lived in something similar for a few years as a student. I think there are people who at certain times of their life would be OK about living in them. At a reasonable price.

EDIT EDIT EDIT: Sloppy quoting here. I meant that I lived in something like the original studio flats, not the RLA "windows" :)

Question is, if lots of these had been built in London, how much do people think they would be selling for now?

aaahhh. At least people are now getting that I was trying to be humorous.

There are some good ideas that expand on this sort of thing in Europe though. Theres a guy over here doing something called M-House. Not quite there yet, and expensive, but economies of scale could sort that out.
