Urbane Grendehus

Project for DOGA (Design and Architecture Norway), with support from Termowood, Vestre, MAD Architects and Superwood



Urbane Grendehus (urban community houses) is a digital service that offers non-commercial, shared meeting places in cities


Fix your bike, make some waffles or eat dinner with your neighbours

The service has two parts: Part 1. Small, modular community houses are built in former parking lots and other temporarily unused spaces in the city. These can accommodate a range of different uses (kitchen, work-places, workshop, greenhouses etc.)

Part 2. Citizens, organisations and neighbourhoods get access to use and share these community houses through a digital service that matches users with available houses that fits their needs


Booking via the app lets you which houses are available in your neighbourhood

As a digital urban service ‘Urbane Grendehus’ will be a scalable, flexible and democratic way to share urban resources.

Transforming parking-lots to community-houses can be used in urban strategies for sustainable transformation and for engaging neighbourhoods and citizens
