Square 1




On designing apartments, YDS Architects always questions the concept of 'living together'.


Creating public spaces of agoras and paths within apartments is the main design theme.


When one goes to apartments, you reach there by roads.

In many cases spaces of agora and path will vanish once you enter an apartment.

Corridors by which you go to your own housing unit are simply routes and they cut the relationship with the cities.


Agoras where residents could gather,interact with each other,and feel nature are essential spaces.

In 'Void in a Forest', 'Court in the city' like western agoras is created.


In a housing where economical rationality should be achieved ,there are always some difficulties in making these agoras.

YDS Architects always pursue designing these common space as effective as possible by carefully studying laws and given conditions.
