Towards a comprehensive urban-housing regeneration model with densification in 9x18 neighborhoods

The project seeks to move from reactive and partialised renovation policies to active and comprehensive regeneration policies, which not only focus their action on critical neighbourhoods or on improving housing, but also extend the intervention to neighbourhoods with ample potential for densification and improvement needs. The initiative promotes policies that integrate the private dimension of housing with the public dimension of the neighbourhood; including the logics of family proximity, neighbourhood belonging and community organisation and respecting the physical heritage of the layout of lots, streets and supply networks, but also the intangible heritage of community life, ways of living, social and family networks.
