Pioneer

Situated in a prime residential neighbourhood of Engomi, the project utilizes the South and West orientations for all the apartments to enjoy views to the street,sunlight and wind,as well as establishing a coherent urban facade.

A generous garden at the front, visible from all apartments,creates a natural foreground to the building, integrating the entrances to the two wings.The ground floor accommodates common and private facilities for the owners and parking. The first and second floors are typical, with three bedrooms and four two bedrooms apartments each,while the third floor consists of a unique four bedroom apartment.

The architecture of the building sustains simultaneously rhythm and balance using variable vertical openings for verandas and windows.The facade of the south- facing wing is elongated and contrasting to the west-facing wing,which is more rectangular.The third floor apartment is recessed and formally differentiated to the rest of the building. This formal fragmentation of the building allows better urban integration in its suburban context.
