Bremer Punkt

The “Bremer Punkt”, a social housing project for the city of Bremen is being re-visited.


A single prototype is being developed to offer a low cost and prefabricated structure that can be deployed on a number of sites.  This project’s cube-like form has a wood exterior and interior, which is anticipated to be an ecological and economical solution for the city of Bremen. With a footprint of 140 m2, this building is compact and unprecedented.
