Description
The projected volume of housing development in Russia by 2025 will be about 900 million sq.m. Thus, the plan is to provide 30 million Russians with new homes. The task of this scale requires the development of high-quality template solutions that will, on the one hand, minimize costs at all stages of the project, including upkeep, and on the other, significantly improve the quality of the residential environment in Russian cities.
The project is based on the basic target models of the urban environment that were developed by KB Strelka: low-rise, mid-rise and central. Each of the models developed on the basis of the analysis of the basic scenarios of the daily life of the urban dwellers is formed by a set of parameters assigned to it that determine the functional diversity and volume and spatial characteristics of the environment itself.
The participants of the Competition will need to design 4 standard solutions of a residential house for one of the environment models. The variability of solutions is designed to provide a variety of appearance of the urban environment. The proposed solutions should set a new quality of affordable housing throughout the country.

Jury
The Jury will consist of the representatives of the National Institution for Housing Sector Development Foundation, the Russian Ministry of Construction as well as prominent Russian and international architects and experts in the field of residential development.
