The aim of this project is to develop a specific typology for a courtyard situation that results in a precise sense of scale, sustainable efficiency and satisfied high quality standards for living space and urban surroundings.
The scale and added-on typology of the pre-existing courtyard architecture are echoed in the two different elements and connected with the advantage of a highly efficient closure of the complex. The resulting volume appears composed in its articulation and is well integrated in the site in terms of size and scale.
