In a small flat lot and without vegetation, four similar rental homes have been designed. A common path connects the street with the entrance to each house and concrete benches are placed creating a common space, a place for relaxation. To the west, the barbecue area and decks are located. These houses provide maximum natural light due to the use of floor to ceiling openings and as a result, the reflection of light can reach every corner of the houses. Cross ventilation to cool the rooms minimizes the use of air conditioners.
