The users are the factory workers, and this block would be their living place and retreat after a long working hours in the factory. The plot was very small, therefore the space needed to be optimized as much as possible.Due to an intense space limitation the concept focused on playfulness and joy. The idea was to search for a solution (in form, materials, function), in which comfort can be achieved, regardless of tight space.


The buildings have been organized as a set of boxes, joyfully shifted from its axes in different directions. This dynamic form, together with the surroundings, form pleasant, comfortable and safe ambient for its hard working inhabitants.
