URBAN: POCKET-HOMES / Atrium-homes for urban-space


The idea was to re-design the usual european suburb home to get more sustainability with a concept that includes the home and the urban location as well. The favourite location that exists in each city is a recycleable waste space. To get a hight density and green space for each home as well, I find a 6000 thousand years old typology of courtyard home called "Riad" from marrackech, marocco. I optimized it to the needs of european inhabitants and envirounments and concepted it with sustainable materials like wood-and lightweight steel constructions. The introvert urban:pocket-homes using 156qm of plot and are able to grow from 120 up to 160qm.
