The concept for "Student City 2" aims to show the potentials of energetically efficient reconstruction, modern student accommodation and the advantages of private and public cooperation. As buildings are primarily susceptible to dilapidation and humidity, the focus of the energy concept is on the replacement of the basic infrastructure, based on an adequate ventilation and heating system including shaded windows. In response to the students needs, the design concept provides for a convenient layout of the student rooms with attached bathrooms and an additional use modification of the lounges. This creates more living space and allows much needed privacy. The added outdoor space on the rooftops allows for a variety of collaborative uses in the area of environmental, economic and social sustainability according to the needs and aspirations of users, helping "Student City 2" to become Albania's pilot project in the field of energy-efficient construction.
