New address (5th year)

TASK

design various housing units in a small town

LOCATION

Germany, Bad Liebenwerda

ACCENTS

short-term design, housing

IDEA

The new addition to the small town neibourhood is a complex of different typologies targeting three types of tenants – young couples, families, and elderly people. Each group has divers demands, yet they can benefit from sharing the joint space. Proposed layouts of units react on street-yard orientation of structure and so do the openings in the facades -opening up towards the courtyard and staying private when facing the street.
