FIRSTlife goes urban!

Project of the modern dormitories for Solar Decathlon Europe 21/22!

About the project

Project FIRSTlife is the competition project of the Czech Technical University in Prague for the Solar Decathlon Europe 21/22. It aims at Feasible and Innovative Residences for Student Life.

FIRSTlife aims at the development of the new accommodation capacities for the focus group by extension of the existing buildings of dormitories. We are going to design and build our vision of modern Dormitories!

While sustainable and energy-efficient buildings are a frequently discussed topic that we deeply care about, this project is about much more to us. We project our own experiences and perception into it. The unavailability of apartments and high prices in Prague affect all the young people every day. The student dormitories capacity is deficient. These circumstances bring students to, lightly said, challenging life situations. Students, who have ever experienced living in dormitories, concur, that if any part of university student life deserves an improvement, it should be the dormitories. We know it, we have lived there.
