BRIDGE YOU and ME
Happy Detour, and an alternative route home

In densely populated urban apartments, although we live in close proximity to our neighbors, we seldom know them on a first name basis.

Hallways in apartment buildings are design to fulfill circulation requirement such us fire escape route, easy access from main entrance to individual apartment.

This design is to create an alternative path with a cozy social area. The idea is for residents to take a detour home and on that detour, there are area for meeting your neighbors by chance to have tea, to chitchat, or even to plant some herbs.
