Second home sauna
A flat with a view of the lake and mountains, how beautiful! It’s clear that something like this costs money. But so much that only those who already own property in the city can afford it? That’s hard to accept, especially when there are hardly any affordable alternatives in this popular holiday region. But what do young adults do here at Lake Traunsee if they want to leave home but stay here? Where can young couples find good small flats? Why is there no cohousing project? What will happen when everyone is old? Everyone says that living in the countryside has a bright future. But only if there are corresponding new projects, we say. So let’s start the future of living on Lake Traunsee in the floating sauna. Let’s set up a housing project for infusion 1 and a community for infusion 2, let’s imagine cross-generational living for infusion 4 and let’s think about which vacancies can be inhabited and how, before the sauna rings for the last infusion. Experts in unusual living will discuss with all those who want to live well and together at Lake Traunsee.
