We are overlooking something! Happens to all of us. Disproportionate thinking or missing a link somewhere. While the solutions are sometimes so obvious. Simple, achievable and affordable. With this moderate package of requirements, Heijmans introduces a new concept of living to the market: Heijmans ONE. This special home offers opportunities to meet demands for qualitative and affordable rental housing, while at the same time solving a social issue.
Two requests, one single solution
Heijmans ONE intelligently combines two issues: a shortage of good temporary rental houses and the dreary sight of empty areas. Heijmans ONE is a beautiful and complete home that is placed temporarily in empty urban areas. It has all the necessary facilities, such as a kitchen, bathroom, large living room with an open space, a separate bedroom and its own front door with an outside patio.
A roof for the generation that falls between two stools
Heijmans ONE serves the generation in the middle. Who? The well-educated: between 25 and 35 years old, first job, single, the world at their feet. In 2050 we will count no less than 700,000 of these "young and high potentials". Surpassing the number of inhabitants of Rotterdam. It is in these enticing places where they wish to develop themselves. However, they do have to make concessions: they earn too much for social housing, too little for the free rental sector. It is difficult to obtain financing for a house, and it is not always desirable either. Heijmans ONE focuses on the rental market. Living for € 700,- per month (indicative price), at a site where they can display their individuality.
Derelict sites come to life
Derelict sites. Everyone has seen them. Hidden spots in or on the outskirts of urban areas, fenced off, where nothing has happened for years. Heijmans ONE offers site owners a solution for these derelict areas. Heijmans ONE makes a positive contribution to the characteristic aspects of these areas, such as attracting new cash flows, social and community binding and identity and safety problems.
A piece of cake
Pre-fabrication means the Heijmans ONE can be realized fast and placed within a day. Is the definitive building construction about to start? Then the house can be easily transported on a lorry to the next destination. This way, temporary use becomes very sustainable again. Besides the circular use of Heijmans ONE, the homes are also extremely energy-efficient thanks to the solid wooden skeleton, the all-electric use and generation of own energy.
