From the architect. The project consists of two volumes of residential units that are situated above a one story underground parking area spaces. Each of residential volumes has its own vertical circulation. There is a total of 17 flats each the size of about 100 sqm. On the ground floor, flats are placed just on the park side with their own private gardens.

The part of the ground floor facing the street has the appearance of covered spaces reminiscent of “arcade” around entrances. The main entrance with a gate is situated together with a car entrance at a lower elevation of the site. Behind the entrance gate is a staircase covered by a cantilevered volume.

This staircase leads to the ground floor. This level contains a partially covered circulation space “arcade” with entrances to both buildings, inner courtyard with a double oak tree and a little gate into south orientated private back garden. On the opposite side of main entrance gate is another entrance right from street level – barrier free. Apartments on the upper most floor have access to roof terraces with greenery.
