The Housing Fund of the Republic of Slovenia plays the role of an implementer of housing policy measures and activities at the national level, constructing neighbourhoods and multi-apartment buildings aimed at solving housing problems of targeted vulnerable groups such as young people, young families, families and the elderly, with a strong emphasis on ensuring high quality of living and sustainable construction principles. The public rental housing stock must reflect a quality built environment for multiple generations. The Housing Fund’s own projects and investments focus on the construction of sustainable and energy-efficient buildings, with the life cycle of buildings being particularly important in the case of the public rental housing stock. The design of the buildings takes into account all the factors that influence the quality of the design of a nearly zero energy building (sNES).
The Housing Fund of the Republic of Slovenia is the investor of five multi-apartment buildings in the Pod Pekrsko gorco neighbourhood, Phase 1, with a total of 212 public rental apartments, including 30 care apartments for the elderly, intended to strengthen the stock of public rental housing
The housing units are located in energy-efficient buildings (Class A1 almost zero-energy Buildings), which are built according to the principles of sustainable construction and offer high quality living comfort at low operating costs.
The project follows the fundamental principles of mitigating and adapting to climate change by ensuring sustainable use and protection of water resources, promoting a circular economy through waste prevention and recycling, preventing and controlling air, water or soil pollution, and protecting and conserving biodiversity and the ecosystem.
The final building permit was obtained on 15 October 2019 and the final occupancy permit on 5 September 2022. The grand opening of the residential neighbourhood took place on 27 September 2022. The housing units are expected to be available for occupation in early 2023.
The housing units, ranging in size from 36 m2 to 83 m2, are spread over five buildings connected by a shared underground garage for parking and service spaces. The design of the buildings creates internal atriums and a common square, where playgrounds are also located, while the planting in the neighbourhood creates green areas that further contribute to the quality of life of the neighbourhood’s users.
To meet the needs of social cohesion, intergenerational cooperation and integration into the environment, Phase 1 also includes a two-section kindergarten and a day activity centre for the elderly, as well as some commercial premises for various uses.
