... don't shREEK !
Although this is a nice (what looks like Coreten steel) box added onto the facade, it misses the point of the competition.
The question posed is "Can we live move effectively in SMALLER spaces." This proposal, in essence re-states the established norm of extending your house rather than improving space utilisation within the existing space.
A second point, without trying to sound like I'm bashing your work too much here, is: imagine if everyone did that. You would overshadow the street. Increased private space at the expense of public space. This is another paradigm problem in contemporary culture. Although, granted, it is not one this competition directly addresses.
Good luck with the development of your submission.
Hi AlexW ... I assume that your question could also be: How could we make small spaces more valuable ... there are many ways to do so ... and this could be an oppertunity.
Wouldn't it be great to earn energie. You can put Voltaigmodules on it. Or create a small garden inside to filter the outside air ... some freeks may grow vegetables - the legal ones - in it. The above appartment may could youses it as a balcony ...
I respect the present and the past but we have to inspire the future ...
Totally misses the point of this whole competition. And the title doesn't exactly conjur up pleasant thoughts.
... all toughts remain to your fantasie ... but thanks for the hint !
While I think that this is very interesting as a concept I feel that there should more about the apartment here. I can not wait to see what about the space you are working on, and how this exterior space works with the interior. Looking forward to it.
an alternative exterior could be very interesting
needs more work !
Hi oao - yes I thought about to make it more transparent and youse it more as an energieprovider with integrated voiltaig. At the same time it could protect from solar gain and streetnoise ... all be back soon
I agree with AlexW. If everyone started to do this, it would look like this...

I think these things should be left to the municipalities to implement. I don't think this is relevant to the competition by any means... and self-promotion is looked down upon here, so i'd be careful: of course the idea is cool, but this one should probably not be rated.
allright. The picture wasn't great. The name wasn't it either.
But I think enough floorplans have been created. So why not thinking or envision some designs that explore problems in other way ...
Their are building and design constaints within the competition.
it's only filling the servers with useless information. this can't be used in the competition, so why waste your time promoting it?
i'll put it this way: Good ideas, Wrong competition
what if we can drink some acid like alice in the wonderland, shrink our body size to fit in a tiny living space!
Should you upload more infos?
Are you working on the apartment space? I am interesting to see what the interior of the apartment looks like, with this being the main focal point.
I still think the random ideas off brief are useful. Even for discussion. But this could have more meat on the bone.
Let's see some more. On brief or in this direction!!
parasite on the wall, nice
Very nice box. I would like to see the apartment..
Hi Chimi !
... with this proposal I tried to inspire more the oppertunities of what could happen outside.
definitely like the idea of the external boxes, but... where's the rest?
I like the greenery, but where is the apartment?
