Superlofts is a new housing concept developed by Marc Koehler Architects [MKA] creating a global network of local building cooperatives to share ideas and inspiration on self-construction and community development.
Superlofts offers a bare structure in which home owners can design and build their own dream house. This provides the opportunity to match lifestyle and budget for a variety of user groups and attitudes from ‘do it yourself’ to turn-key luxury.
Superlofts generates radically flexible and resilient buildings that can adapt over time to shifting trends and behavior because of the radical separation of support and fit out systems. This building model has proven to be highly adaptable to different sites often pioneering at the urban fringe.
Superlofts coordinates the ‘design & build’ process together with local partners and the community of future homeowners. This cooperative development model puts the homeowner, as co-developer, at the center of the decision-making process offering flexibility and influence resulting in uniquely crafted spaces, cost-effective and energy-efficient buildings.
Superlofts uses the power of sharing to connect inhabitants activating social well-being and providing a platform for exchanging ideas and inspiration. The exibility of the open framework creates an opportunity to add common spaces or shared facilities at minimal cost, resulting in small vertical villages. This creates a sense of communal urban living while providing every homeowner with a unique chance to build a tailor-made space.
With several projects currently completed and many more in development in the Netherlands and abroad Superlofts is the customizable niche-development housing concept of the future.
