Hawa Student Award 2020 – Microliving


Hawa Sliding Solutions is launching its fifth international sponsorship prize for students of architecture. The focus is on the topic of «microliving». Recent studies show that privately used living space in urban areas will be greatly reduced in the future.

Under the motto «Living alone together», students will design a building with 250 to 300 small apartments and various shared rooms for an urban audience. They are looking for intelligent solutions for the flexible spatial use of housing units with a maximum of 35 square metres.

Sliding solutions can play a decisive role here – for example, when it comes to changing usage options, the creation of storage space and space-saving solutions.

The competition entries are judged and awarded prizes by a renowned jury. Hawa Sliding Solutions is providing a total prize sum of 12,000 Swiss francs for this project.
