The next instalment of our Dezeen x MINI Living series features a concept for a modular balcony system designed to encourage good relations between neighbours.
Entitled Social Balconies, the project was designed by product designer and recent Design Academy Eindhoven graduate, Edwin Van Capelleveen.
The concept consists of a pair of modular components that connect pre-existing balconies, creating shared spaces between neighbours for communal activity.
Modules come in the form of a staircase to connect apartments on various levels of a building, and a bridge to connect apartments next to each other.
The system also comes with planters that can be attached to the railings of the staircases and bridges.
“Planters can be incorporated to make the building come alive, and to spark interaction between residents,” Van Capelleveen said.
