Authors’ Comment

The project is part of a residential complex located in an flourishing area on the outskirts of Bucharest and aims to provide an intimate and natural dwelling by trying to create a community that the inhabitants will appropriate and perceive as "home". Therefore, the emphasis was put on the character of the public space as a meeting place, and this fact is highlighted by the careful treatment of the street: green stripes, small sitting places, different types of pavement etc.
The three types of house modules give the project a dynamic image and formally improve the perceived atmosphere at the street level, thus avoiding the (more and more frequent) visual uniformity of this building typology. Moreover, the various types of land contribute to this vibrating image through the presence or absence of the front yard, which leads to a mixed street front. Also, the discrete color palette of the façade elements and cladding strengthens the feeling of individuality and personality of the dwellings.
