The essential idea of the proposal is to adapt 5 minor building volumes both in scale and style to the surrounding buildings. All the apartments have their own outdoor space, terrace, or large balcony and are generally small throughout (46, 60 and 80 m2). The dwellings build on the idea of “compact living” - trying to affect the largest possible perceived space from a limited, small area and also allow for light to enter from three openings that also look on beautiful views.
