Turning an old mental hospital into a possible living solution to loneliness – sound a little crazy?  Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture are attempting to redesign a 10,800 sqm mental hospital into a 230 apartment block complex, which encourages a highly social environment through shared functions.  Similar to hotel living, Parkour will offer squash courts, spa / sauna, a workshop, common lounge room, sports pool and a gymnasium – which are available to “borrow” on request.  Communal rooftop food production reduces the need for eutrophication and transportation, whilst utilising renewable energy with solar cells and wind turbines.
