Residential block proposed on the corner of Jász and Kerekes streets, in the 13th District. The irregular shape of the plot is even more difficult than at first look: local regulations obligate us to make a cut on the volume at the corner. We were investigating and reached a floor plan layout solution, where all the rooms can still have regular rectangular shape, but the balconies and their breast-walls can evoke the traditional street lines. This way we see a virtual volume, a sort of ghost of the traditional block. Since we managed to park all cars on the ground floor, its façade is in contrast with the upper levels’ elevation.
