Ostalada, a participatory housing consulting company located on boulevard Déodat-de-Séverac, aims to encourage participatory housing projects with individuals. Structure with a social and solidarity vocation, it has just moved into the premises of the ALLEE toy library, near the Arènes in Toulouse. “It is also thanks to the game that we discover this type of habitat and our presence here therefore takes on its full meaning”, explain Pauline Loiseau and Cécile Alliot, the founders. Families of first-time buyers, single people, seniors who wish to anticipate staying at home, or people with disabilities, for Ostalada, participatory housing must be accessible to as many people as possible. Expert in real estate and construction, Ostalada provides technical and legal assistance to secure and ensure the success of projects. In Occitania out of 130 projects, 33 were successful. The specificity of Ostalada is the rehabilitation in urban areas, of existing individual buildings “We are working on large houses that can accommodate 3 to 10 families, with possibilities of extension and shared spaces (garden, common room… ) where locals can meet”. The future inhabitants do not have to resort to a promoter and save 15% on construction.
