Urban Block Moskau
The block’s centre is carved out creating a secluded open space whilst enforcing the grid structure. It is broken up into 8 individual segments which allow for sun, light, and air into the block and views out.
These segements form communities at a smaller scale within the block.
The block can respond to its location along various types of urban space because of the flexibility of the ground floor in individual segments. Apartments elevated above the street in quieter residential quarters, offices and shops along commercial routes and restaurants and cafes when the block sits opposite a park.
