"Structum" Editorial office.

The main concern of designing this project was to have a good view of the forest and overlooking the surrounding area, which start from the design of high-rise cottages and start with two concrete cores that forming the structure of them on both sides.

It is needed an elevator for vertical access to these huts, but this time architects thought a little differently and decided to elevate the house itself instead of attaching the elevator to the house! In such a way that the cottages are like an elevator car and form a vertical access through the elevator structure which is connected to the concrete cores.
