    This five-story block consists of 163 one-room apartments, two commercial premises and an underground garage. We proposed a divided and open block whose inner space is a designed patio that enables enough light and views of the public space. Inside of the open block the unbuilt space is intended for planting deciduous trees.


    This is an open and divided block which enables:

    illuminated spaces, various sizes and differenig heights, inner and outer perspectives that provide constantly-changing views, various openings that enable continuous change of the light, diverse approachesto the block and quiet places in it, as the opposite of the standard monotonous passages that are poorly illuminated and ventilated; by adding and deducting of the housing units, a more diverse and better illuminated space with interesting vistas is created.
