Outline

An apartment building located in an urban center would need special arrangements to keep moderate distance from its surrounding area. This apartment has a semi-open area covered with screen of bricks arranged in honeycomb pattern, which creates a new kind of connection to the outside. By placing these screens in zigzag pattern, the location of the brick screen will differ every two floors, producing a variety in room plans. This apartment manages to bring diversity into its room plans and paints a new scenery for the neighbourhood which is the aim of this housing complex prototype.
