From the architect. Apartment building on Aleksandri St is located in an environment with many different spatial strata. The shape of the building is affected by a restricted detailed plan, drafted to the plot years ago, and a large water collector diagonally dissecting the plot and thus, the house. Conforming to these restrictiong, the building meanders on the plot, softly reaching towards ground on the ends.

Characteristically to backyard buildings, it does not have a distinctive main façade. According to the relief of the plot, there are multi-level apartments with higher living rooms; all apartments feature a balcony or terrace.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Aleksandri St. apartment building / Salto AB" 23 Sep 2009. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/35887/aleksandri-st-apartment-building-salto-ab/>
