OK93 is a multi-family housing unit centered in our experience in the field of education and research, having developed alternative urban housing typologies, through a collaborative working approach. The intention was to consider contemporary house in terms of landscape-city, private-public, interior-exterior relations, as efficiency and profitability were the premises asked by the developer.
The result is a 12 apartment project -from 38 to 80 sqm- organized within three blocks interlocked with two voids as linear open space system. Two strategies define the project: the mutability of program, through which the spatial configuration can be transformed to produce heterogeneous architectural programs, achieving maximum efficiency in limited spaces, and instability of physical and symbolic limits, attaining more complex and enriching interaction between dwellings, voids, common areas as green spaces and the city.
These limits sometimes fade to link a kitchen with a green terrace or a corridor with a vertical garden, while some others, dilate to create double facades, useful as solar shields and livable terraces, to incite a dynamic spatial experience.
In a short glance the created landscape appears, in the long sight, the city is revealed.
