Abstract: Looking at the visions of future cities we can find some new type of hybrid mixed-use buildings. Most of them are a combination of residential, office and public service. Some even contain urban farming facilities. On the other hand, looking at the statistics over 50% Europeans live in single family buildings. So there is a question raised: is there a place for this type of dwelling in future cities. Can it be efficient, sustainable and resilient enough to make an attractive element for the urban tissue construction in the future? In the paper there are different factors from multiple concepts of the city of tomorrow analyzed in order to answer the title question.
