On December 7th Bert Karel Deuten lectured about our research project Goed Wonen in een Betaalbare Woning at the conference ‘Betaalbare nieuwbouw, dat doe je zo!’ organized by Platform31.
There is a growing demand for affordable housing in The Netherlands. Bert Karel joined the discussion with the panel and the audience to find the answer to the question what necessary measures should be taken to realize new affordable housing. The conclusion is that solutions can (and need to) be found in the process chain of social housing development and above all: the dwellings themselves. The type of house and the required space to use it should be leading. We propose a base quality for social housing that meets contemporary demands and allows for affordable development and rents.
