Housing with 60 Scenes
This housing project mediates two different street conditions; one facing the pedestrian street and the other facing the park, Emerald Necklace. Inserting new housing programs on the given site will provide a great view toward the park for the inhabitants, while allowing visual and physical connections to the park at the public level.
Facades on the park side scatters to take advantage of the view. Facades on the street side of the residential area has a compact appearance complying with its neighboring residential buildings. Spreading out aggregation of units will enhance a view toward the Emerald Necklace for the residents, while public corridors along the courtyard will enable the visual and physical connections to the park for public use.
