We are surround by the apartments in which there are numbers of flats put on top of each other and creating a single block. The idea in this project which is totaly opposite to the apartment blocks supports a new approach to the housing issue. The needed optimum volume of each type of families (a single man, a couple, a nuclear family or an extended family) was calculated and while bringing all units together, increasing the unvoluntary encounter among different types of people living in this complex was highly taken into considerition.
Each unit was attached to a circulation corridor and in total the circulation system has three semi-open circulation corridors letting the air flow among the units and having its own ventilation and lighting systems.
