Courtyard Dialogues

Housing now, more than ever, requires added access to the outdoors. Our project tackles this current need through the idea of fragmentation at both the urban and unit scale. Four types of standardized housing units are stacked strategically to provide private terraces, while courtyards are carved out of the building’s mass to allow for shared outdoor spaces. Elevated streets connect the housing units to the courtyards bringing about a rich private-public rhythm.
