Divided into two main plots, long strips of narrowly attached residential units create a non-repetitive composition of positive and negative blocks of solid sheets providing privacy and front buffering gardens, thus protecting the houses from being exposed to the main traffic.
The client’s main target was to provide small families and expats with their daily needs, from privacy to relaxation and public interaction. A unique introverted landscape, easily accessible from all units.
