The project is based on the symbiosis of two main concepts:

  • Maintaining the essence and character of the neighborhood’s industrial landscape by recognizing the spatial characteristics and materials of the existing building.
  • Introducing the typology of a Courtyard House, typical from the Mediterranean culture, in which the house revolves around the outdoor space, which becomes the main center of the dwelling.

Therefore, the project proposes a completely open and flexible space with high-rise roofs in which the only independent spaces are the bedrooms.

All rooms from the interior living space revolve around the courtyard that acts as the domestic’s core; a “green” oasis which brings light, ventilation and nature into the house.
