The project was designed as a prototype for housing on the perimeter of a town, but it can also butterfly, or mirror either side of an alley on squared urban sites of approximately one hectare.

This project is part of an ongoing effort to improve the type. Good urbanism is almost impossible to achieve without good examples of multi-family housing. This urban type deserves our attention, even if architects, contractors and trades increasingly flee this option because of litigation processes.
