The scope of this project was to maintain a community atmosphere.
The nine houses are organized along a collective driveway.
We used three different plans sharing the same dimensions consisting of: a living-room, a kitchen, three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The diversified colors of the facades and the variation in direction of the flat sloping roofs differentiate the individual houses without disturbing their unity.
