Each unit has a courtyard, which brings light inside and extends the limited interior space to the outside.

Instead of extending the floor area to the maximum of the site, we made space between the outer wall and the property line, and put the entrance of each unit on the periphery of the building. This outside space works as a shared front garden and a corridor to access each entrance door. This circled outside corridor relatesthe habitants somehowand connects the building and the surroundings gently.
