Transformation project explores co-housing as an affordable living option for students and a rapidly growing demographic section of young-olds. The aim is not only to regain the right to dwell in the overpriced city centre, but also to tackle loneliness among the 


generations. Thresholds as the focus of the project narrative shape spaces for interaction and contribute to the sense of belonging. Morover it deals with equal approach to generations, providing the uniform living unit that could accomodate both.
