Better Living in the City

Better Living in the City

Concepts and examples of family dwelling
The study shows and discusses 25 dwellings (focusing on family accommodation) which can be seen as examples of individual living in the city. They offer living qualities which are of the same value as those which single-family houses provide. Besides quality, the cost of inner city habitation also matters. The book shows approaches that lead to residential housing construction offering more single-family home qualities. With its critiques and exemplary solutions, the workbook seeks to contribute to quality initiative from the point of view of customers, leasers, builders and architects.
