Internal courtyard, internal transparency, shared circulation
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Mop House is a residential project by AGi architects that was originally planned to house one family with two small children, however in the future it could be divided into two units. The structure of the house and the distribution of the circulation, as well as the positioning of the entrances and lift allows for guaranteed privacy between parents and children in the prospective future. The site can be accessed from either side of the surrounding streets to allow for both a private and a public entrance, whilst establishing a strong relationship with the adjacent public garden.
