This is a housing complex consists of the same two unit.
YDS designs a stylish and low-cost housing complex by a simple, cubic design.
The external terrace is inserted into the center of the 2nd floor.
Although this external terrace is small, it would be private space for residents with walls of three sides.
Thanks to this terrace, one would feel the outer space in inner spaces, and it brings about lights and the winds into the rooms and the corridors.
Nature stimulates the inner spaces and illustrates the life of residents.
In this house which share the central wall, the intention is that the marginal spaces brought about by these voids would connect the architecture and the city and the spaces of daily life would expand to the urban spaces.
