The building is for a large cityblock in Croatia. The brief called for a mix of live/work spaces to fill this vacant space in a dense part of town. We developed a scheme which filled the lot with alternating office/apartment units and then inserted a series of knotted skylights into the block to create courtyards to act as areas to move between work and home. The knots also bring light deep into the block. The knotted lightwells nestle between the aggregated live work spaces. They also provide and identify entry points to the building.
