Vyšehrad slope

Apartment building on a slope, hidden in the shadow of a totalitarian fortress, in a villa block on the very edge of Nusle. How to build an apartment building with high quality housing for its inhabitants and at the same time does not harm its neighbors. The house follows the slope as much as possible, each apartment has its own spacious terrace and light well, which also provides daylight to the subsurface rooms and connects the apartment with the outdoor space. The building is connected vertically by a diagonal elevator and horizontally by access corridors which are illuminated by a luxfer in the ceiling through the terraces above the corridors.
