The quest and the necessity for Affordable Housing in post-war Kosovo: in-between planning and development models

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

Real estate experienced an unprecedented development during these two decades in post-war Kosovo. Planning has expanded the boundaries of the cities as well has allowed the development of suburbia in former agricultural lands. With all the stock of houses and apartments, most of them are not affordable for the middle class, education and health workers, public administration, etc., to mention a few. This paper examines the quest and necessity for Affordable Housing in post-war Kosovo, by constructing a framework of development through models of collaboration, investment, construction, and administration. This paper will relay in cooperative methods of similar developments in Europe and elsewhere, as well as the real policies of developing adequate, available, accessible and Affordable Housing in Kosovo through, zoning, land use policies, transportation, and the liberal policies of (foreign) investments. Finally, this paper will be scrutinized in a set of architectural solutions, suitable to make the housing affordable, including mixed-use, prefabrication and stackable modular apartments, crating well-designed, custom projects, with reasonable costs as well as ensuring profitability, within the constraints of affordability, sustainability and livability.

The quest and the necessity for Affordable Housing in post-war Kosovo: in-between planning and development models

UBT Kampus, Lipjan

Real estate experienced an unprecedented development during these two decades in post-war Kosovo. Planning has expanded the boundaries of the cities as well has allowed the development of suburbia in former agricultural lands. With all the stock of houses and apartments, most of them are not affordable for the middle class, education and health workers, public administration, etc., to mention a few. This paper examines the quest and necessity for Affordable Housing in post-war Kosovo, by constructing a framework of development through models of collaboration, investment, construction, and administration. This paper will relay in cooperative methods of similar developments in Europe and elsewhere, as well as the real policies of developing adequate, available, accessible and Affordable Housing in Kosovo through, zoning, land use policies, transportation, and the liberal policies of (foreign) investments.
