Apartment as a Narrow House


It is so nice to have one's own garden, one's own view of the sky, and everything in between. Here is how it can be done in three-meter width.

In Zagreb's built tissue there are small, forgotten, derelict houses, cramped between apartment blocks. They do not get developed because their plots are too small: They give no opportunity for high profits arising from a large number of apartments.

This concept for a plot in Zagreb proposes a scenario where the six-meter-wide plot receives two equal 120 m2 apartments so that both achieve contact with the ground, a garden, and contact with the skies.

Such a house is compatible with the new surrounding buildings in terms of height while protecting the back-garden from view, and the apartments provide a novel residential experience.
