passerelle housing

June 7, 2011

A housing complex in an organic open city block that features elevated streets – passerelles as a communicating method between two building and therefore breaks the traditional neighboring. The complex is conceived as three vertical communities across the two buildings of which each has a common terrace and they all gravitate to the same vertical communication block. All apartments are double oriented, as the galleries are perpendicular to buildings. The larger distance between buildings allow for better lighting of the triangular square they create in between them.


the diagram compares an ontological house to a multistory building in terms of relation to the public space – street / gallery / hallway and it’s privacy and lighting qualities
