Izola Social Housing

July 12, 2008


30 apartments of different sizes and structures, varying from studio flats to 3-bedroom apartments. The apartments are small, there are no structural elements inside the apartments, thus providing flexibility and the possibility of reorganising things.
The project proposed a veranda for each apartment, thus providing an outdoor space that is intimate, partly connected with the interior, shady and naturally ventilated.

A textile shade protects the balcony and apartment from prying eyes, yet due to its semi-transparency allows the owner to enjoy the views of the bay. Perforated side-panels allow summer breeze to ventilate the space. The strong colours create different atmospheres within the apartments. Boxes at the side of each balcony provide room for air-conditioning units.
The small rooms become visually bigger because the textile shade creates a perspective effect that connects part of the exterior with the interior.
