The way that people are choosing to live and work is changing. NxtGen lofts are based on a modular building system which allows to configure a wide range of different housing typologies that promote a sense of wellbeing and turn the spaces we inhabit into healthier and happier places. (Happy lofts). Combining prefabrication methods with economy of scale makes affordable modular housing possible.
The NxtGen Lofts are designed for convenience and comfort: home automation, twin hot swappable panels with bio-based insulation, noise reduction, high ceilings and windows to create a sense of spaciousness. Build in such a way that a building can be deconstructed and brought back to the original basic elements (“Legolisation”).
Some forms of living closer together have arisen from economic necessity but others have clearly emerged from sheer determination to create an alternative and more desirable ways to live.

We believe that more and more people are looking to live in a nurturing community with other people that can support one another. The dimensions allow for creating communities (micro villages), where people are familiar with each other, share the same interests and keep the environment safe.
NxtGen Lofts allow people to start sharing amenities in their living environment which improves their quality of life but also acts as a social activation. This type of housing brings together people of different generations and encourages them to enjoy social interaction with their neighbors and friends.
