Urban block – a hybrid of typologies, which contains two urban dichotomies – periphery and centre – the green environment of the peripheral typical city blocks is infused with dynamic activities and pulse of the city center. Structuring the social fabric through the architectural means: the courtyard territory is divided in various scales to accommodate for accents and range of local identities.
The space, which surrounds the housing, remains in the constant dialog with the person, becomes integral with his / hers experience of the «Home» and in turn forms the impression of the «Home». The urban block as a part of the urban system. The division into urban blocks is dictated by the grid of the streets.
The public activity core – is the grid of the inner-block boulevards and squares, which dissects the the city blocks. The gradient of the private character of the spaces, the change in experiences (from public to privately-isolated), variations in intensity and the level of private access – are the determining factors for creating the context.
(retail, cafe, city functions, spaces for rent). Interior pedestrian boulevard – connections (interconnections with neighbouring city blocks). Inner-block linear park (the territory of the residents) – semi-public 2, the alternative for the classical element — courtyard. Micro-courtyards – the space for residents of the individual entries (the entry as the minimal value of the micro-community). The ground as fundamental value, as the unit of resident’s identity. The environment with human-centered scale, natural materials, the tactical and sensible approach.
