Public & Social Housing
When most people hear “social housing” for the first time, they think about houses that are built for people with low income. This is because the term "Social Housing" has a negative connotation in people’s mind. Considering public housing projects, they are often seen as a project that wants to build a large number of units with cheap materials and minimal concern for the quality of life of its residents. Most of the time, unlike a project that serves the city and its people, public housing projects are designed for monetary reasons. The direct lexical meaning of social housing is; “Houses and flats that are built by local government or by any other organizations that is non-profit making, and that are rented or sold to people who have low incomes.” However, when we hear about the concept of public housing, we think of structures that satisfy the condition of being just a shelter and where the minimum level is sufficient in terms of the constructed buildings. It is not right to reduce the meaning of the social housing to the lexical definition level. Social housing affects many factors. From long-term urban planning to the social and cultural structure of the region where public housing projects are being made. The concept of social housing should be addressed by considering a holistic process, including urban planning, and taking into account its contribution to the social group it will serve.
Housing is primarily the most basic physical space where people are in a relationship with life. This is so regardless of whether they are called "social" or not. While public housing is being planned, not only the need for shelter should be considered, but also factors that directly affect human life such as the culture of the targeted social crowd of people, social relationships, and life habits should be taken into account too. At the same time, considering the environment of the houses to be built, their compatibility with the targeted social crowd of people in many issues should be taken into consideration while building social housing too. One of the factors that make up a healthy society is neighbourhood relations, which are not really taken into account in the age we live in today. Social Housing does not always have to be built as buildings that are consisting of apartment sites. It can be made as a single storey building in a region within the scope of a governmental institution or housing help, as settlements that are not very close to each other. In accordance with public housing projects, reinforced concrete houses or prefabricated, container houses can be built in a shorter time with an easier and more cost-effective way. With their production quality, fast production technology, especially fast and easy transportation, Karmod ready houses have the feature of being installed in a very short time in the region where they will be used. As Karmod, we have contributed to public housing activities in Bayburt province, different villages of Giresun Alucra and across Africa.
What is Social Housing?
The interest in social housing has grown tremendously over the years. With this immense growth, the meaning of the term ‘social housing’ had different meanings, most of which were incorrect. We can say that social housing is a dense settlement place which offers economic solutions and focuses on fixed income groups, middle income groups or low income groups. Generally, there is no or very little profit expectation at public housing projects. This kind of projects use opportunities of the state or charity organizations such as foundations and associations. States generally build these housings for its fixed income, middle income or low income citizens. Most of these housing units have a designs that are generally not very pleasing both in terms of looks and usefulness. As a matter of fact, they may not be very useful all the time. A regulator of public housing thinks costs and practicality most of the time. It is a fact that in an average country, majority of the population consists of fixed, middle and low-income citizens. Because of this, such projects should be given importance. More useful, practical, affordable and higher quality houses should be designed and built.
