We wanted to prove good simple design with nature in mind is possible even with limited space and small budget.
A shop occupies the ground level: open plan, entry with canopy and folding doors open up the shop front. At the side is an entry and core leading to 5 flats above, positioned and rotated to occupy minimal area on the facade. Flats at the back have long balconies with panoramic views of greenery. The roof's parapet walls facing the street is pulled up to increase the sense of privacy and shading for the rooftop garden.
