TAKO and JOTAR form a mutually complementary project pair whose goal was to develop models for flexible and healthy housing. In the corona pandemic, the importance of the home was emphasized when the work and free time spent home increased. Challenges and problems were found regarding the
adequacy and quality of the apartments, as well as housing services. Spatial flexibility and adequate sizing enable remote work and increase well-being.
Flexible apartments adapt to changes in the living situation of the residents and reduce the need to move out, and it is easier to bring welfare and care services
into them. A versatile, high-quality, and healthy building stock is longer-lived.
In the TAKO project, research-based demo plans for residential buildings were prepared that responded to the challenges of the pandemic situation: remote
work, limiting close contacts, health safety, and the organization of care and welfare services. In addition, supported housing solutions based on digital
technology were mapped. In the JOTAR project, demos and good solutions were applied and brought directly to operators, with whom the development
continued in close cooperation. The goal was that the plans and services will be of high-quality, long-lasting and low-carbon. For the same reason, the use of
wood was emphasized in the construction. The private partners of the projects were housing companies, property managers, construction companies, producers of building materials, as well as welfare and care service providers and technology companies. The public target groups were the welfare region of South Ostrobothnia, cities, and municipalities. Both projects were implemented as a collaboration between the Tampere University and Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences in 2021 - 2023. The main financier of the projects was the
Council of South Ostrobothnia (EAKR), the work was hosted by the Seinäjoki University Centre.
