"House 23" should have complied with requiredcriteria of accommodation for up to 30 people in a very tight space. Since thisfacility was primarily for accommodation of young people, it was adapted totheir sensibility. The ground floor comprises mutual kitchen with a living room,two sleeping rooms and bathrooms while the attics has bedrooms with bathrooms.

-Facility interior is almost ascetic, with a reference to utilitarianaspect of accommodation during seminarsand workshops– a collocutor of eKapija explains.

The thing mutual for all three facilities is connection to the yard, a large number of glass movable walls in the ground floor. This ways, it makes houses “connect” with" green areas and together with the land make the inseparable unit. It is important to mention furniture as well, the architects designed one part of it deliberately and one part contains repaired old pieces of furniture from the land. This way, authors wanted to keep character of former households and local heritage.

Maximal renewable energy resources exploitation

On the other hand, designing challenge was to make all facilities sustainableand energy efficient so innovative heating and cooling systems were used.
