Case 07 | Tamadaira-no-Mori Housing Complex
Tamadaira, completed in 1958, is one of the extensive housing complexes run by UR. In order to improve the decrepit houses that no longer meet the contemporary needs, UR embarked on the rebuilding project in 1997. By attracting facilities for the support of the elderly and child care as well as commercial facilities to the empty premises born out of the reorganization of the housing complex, the project aims to maintain and sustain local communities including those around the complex and promote cross-generation interaction. While retaining the rich greenery in the premises and inheriting the atmosphere of the good old housing complex, the renovation proposes a new way of habitation. UR worked together with the local government and private sectors to proceed with the project and to improve community value.
Locations : Hino City, Tokyo

Sustainable community development through renovation of existing housing
UR rented out vacant buildings generated from reconstruction projects to private sectors to be renovated into houses that attract various generations.
Housing complex-type shared houses
Private sectors renovated the housing complex into a shared housing style by dividing one three-room-with-kitchen apartment into three rooms, with a newly built lounge and kitchen for shared use.
