Constellation House is a high-density, flexible, urban residential building type.
The Constellation House is an architectural design for a Baugruppe that rethinks privacy and community by breaking up the apartment of the nucleus family into day rooms and night rooms on different floors. This not only enables larger communality without the loss of privacy, but also makes the apartments more flexible in the long run and therefore usage of space more efficient – avoiding family apartments being only inhabited by the old parents. When you need more space, you rent night rooms of your neighbours; to reduce space, you rent out some of your night rooms. If you have a large dinner, you use the communal floor. The Constellation House provides apartments that are always adequate in size.
