House Erwin, which filled an empty corner site, is reviving the corner and makes it more attractive. The House accepts the height of surrounding buildings and highlights the corner by shaping it’s volume. The facade is divided into horizontal strips filled with window openings and façade cladding panels.

The underground floor is designed under the whole area of the courtyard and it’s roof is made as a green chill out area. Thus provides the view from flats to calm greenery.

The facade is made up of titanium-zinc panels and horizontal strips. The window openings on the facade are alternating with the plastered fillings and titanium-zinc panels.

On the ground floor is a commercial area. On the upper floors are located apartments. The underground floors are used for parking spaces. The building contains 31 housing units, 1 studio, 2 commercial areas and 44 parking spaces.

The floors are vertically connected by a central lift. In the last floor is one large flat with big south terrace. Habitable rooms of dwellings are oriented southeast and southwest, this orientation will ensure sufficient sunlight. The bedrooms are orientated to the quiet green courtyard.
