Construction of a building with 26 apartments, 4 townhouses and 30 parkingplaces.
The site orientation, flanked by a park, induces the organisation of the apartments in a "strip" with a gradient of varying openings; rather closed on the street facade to the north and widely opened on the garden side to the south. A shifted loggia system is introduced to allow full enlightenment and terraces for each unit. The basic volume is constructed in grey thin bricks with white mass extrusions to form windows, loggias and the entrance hall. The town houses to the rear are backed to the party wall with perpendicular volumes housing the living spaces around the private patios.
