CO-LIVING IN ARTILLERIHUSET: Bridging the communication gap.

Service Design

CX Design

THE BRIEF Artillerihuset is a student housing, owned by a housing company FSB, and freshly built, it was open for new residents in November 2020. The residents face different challenges regarding problems in the building, as well as co-living aspects. The biggest problem is that there are different communication channels with the landlord - and it takes long time to reach them. This case study was part of my master thesis, where the focus was on co-creation, fostering safe spaces in co-creation activities by applying improvisation theatre techniques in the process. CLIENT FSB

TIME 3 months


How Service Design, Design Thinking and Co-creation could be used to improve the resident experiences in a Co-living setting?

THE SOLUTION In the design process, after facilitating 2 workshops with the residents was decided to create a new digital app, mainly for communication purposes with the landlord - FSB. In the app, residents can qucikly communicate with the landlord, as well as access FAQ section. Residents can create a request, and receive updates on the request process. For example, if your radiator isn’t working, you will receive an update if anyone is looking at the request and when the technician can come to fix it.

THE PROCESS Double Diamond design thinking was used to foster the design process into different stages. Co-creative activities were part of both converge phases in the design process, both Discover and Define. As the project focus was on the co-creation, a lot of co-creative activities were facilitated in these stages. The Artillerihuset residents were involved in these workshops, that took place in person.

Main problem areas in Artillerihuset.

During the define phase the main problem area was discovered. 4 main problems arised, and they were split into primary and secondary problems. Primary: “Bad communication from FSB - the housing company”, “Internal misunderstandings between the residents.”. Secondary problems: “Physical problems in the building, like leakage”, “Theft”. It was decided to focus on the primary problems.

How might we improve the communication in Artillerihuset? 1.With Fsb? 2.With internal residents?
