A House of Signals


When I wrote about the Bridge House I told you, that it has apartments reserved for seniors. This house, the Signal House, is reserved for juniors, or rather young people up to the age of 25. The 72 apartments have been designed so 4 people share kitchen, living room and bathroom. All in all 288 young people live here. The idea of making apartments for young people is a good one, I think, mainly because they are affordable (through heavy subsidies from the municipality). These are perfect for people to try life out without having to buy one of the very expensive apartments in Copenhagen, especially for those without "rich" parents to buy it for them. Though I think that this house is probably not for those craving peace and quiet:-)
