Located in the lively neighborhood of Gazi, the proposal was conceived as a dissolution of the strong boundaries of an elementary habitable “box” and the arrangement of a flowing design by plates. In this multi-housing project, the design “opened” towards the outside forming a condition of extroverted multi-habitation. The dissolution of the “box” is conceptually articulated by vertical and horizontal planes in “bracket” ties with one another. These planes penetrate the façade and slide like “drawers” inside the interior and create livable space.
