Idea projektu

The main idea for the project is the functional separation between functions using greenary and fences made of stone, but it also needs to fulfill comfort for the user's of the spaces.

Popis projektu

The site is mainly separated into 2 parts, the residential functions on one side and the official functions on the other side. The whole connected by a main axis which is a promenade that branches into all of the areas. Each separate building has its own garden. The masses are all horizontal and vertical on each other to make us feel the compactness of the buildings next to each other although they are separated and so shading elements are also placed in the same direction of the masses. The road at the west of the site is a private road to the users not to the public with security guard house at all entrances.
