Our idea is to do vertically 3 single houses (villas) built on a metal structure.

2 of the most important characteristics of a single house are that it is detached, at a distance from adjacent buildings or neighbors and the 2nd is the garden with soft, green, and hard floors.

These 2 were the creative-driven force of how we wanted our building to feel.

We tried to minimize the volumes that were attached to the next flat to minimize any possible interference between the people who owned the houses.

We managed this by inserting a small middle floor each time, which produced a void space, especially combined with the atrium. The void space was then been occupied by gardens and outdoor covered areas.

In a way, the built part was equal or even less to the outdoor space, covered and uncovered and this is something quite new to an apartment buildings.

The latest changes in the building regulations and also the new technologies which we have tested and introduced to our design, but also the need for new and more sustainable living conditions allowed us to fulfill our design and living experiment and produce this typical (at least for now) apartment building.
