The Brief – block of 4 apartments with a courtyard, terraces and living space on dierent levels…
The Solution – conceptually resolved by the cross, 4 ‘houses’ with separate courtyard, roof terrace and clear planning at each of the three levels. The additional conditions we felt important were the comparative privacy of each family and the displacement of the different floors for better views and more sunlight. Nevertheless, a contractor who came into sight said “This won’t sell…”. Finally, he did what he reckoned… it didn’t sell.
