The urban perimeter block defines and gives shape to the European city. Consistent edges clarify the threshold between the public and the private domain. The perimeter structure gives definition to the street with facades that conform to some consistent rules and it contains an inner space or courtyard that provides air, sun and recreational space to the inhabitants. The simplicity and directness of this urban figure gives it great versatility in organization and economy of space. Territory is clearly demarcated – everyone understands it – both the passerby who might judge their journey through the city by the number of blocks they pace past or by the inhabitant who knows that once they cross the threshold of the gate or the porch-door know that they are home.

Our urban strategy seeks to keep the closed block and reactivate the courtyard as a whole by bringing back together its two sides and promoting a sense of community.

As it is a very large courtyard we tried to differentiate the spaces. Therefore we came up with an arrangement of non directional building volumes which create a hierarchy of different spaces and qualities. Every building has its own character and develops differently towards the upper levels.

Various types of floor plans offer living space for contemporary family structures, groups and also individuals. Especially the ground level spaces are intended to react to adjacent spatial situations outside to connect the buildings with its surroundings.
The inner organisation offers contrasting levels of openness to accentuate differing levels of privacy.

Our facade concept presents our building as siblings which share different qualities but still have their own identity.
