Extending Public, Improving Private ‘s main goal is the regeneration of the housing quartier, revitalising its relation with the city and with the people that live there.
Therefore, it was significant to organize the built space for the housing with green and open spaces for social interaction between the neighbours of this community.
As it was also important the creation of a new housing building, which connects with the existing ones and functions simultaneously as an acoustic and visual, barrier for the inner life.
Much attention was given to the green “voids” as to the modular system of the housing composition, which permitted versatile space configurations.
Therefore, when living in a community, your neighbourhood becomes part of your private sphere, and the green gardens in between the buildings become public extensions for your private life.
