The massing strategy for the different unit types is approached through a nine square grid that manifests itself both in plan and elevation.
The grid becomes the organizing principle that determines the position of carved in open spaces and extruded out volumes through the individual houses.
The carvings and extrusions of the platonic geometry generate serialized variation that manifests itself in the articulation of the façade.
