When you’ve got a piece of land that measures 11 meters by 200 meters, you really don’t have much space unless you think like Slovenian design firm OFIS. In a seemingly small space, OFIS have managed to fit service areas, public function rooms, and 192 studio apartments. So what? People build high rise buildings everyday. But they certainly don’t build them as sleek, classy and modern as this block located in Paris’ 19th District. Looking like individual baskets, the apartment block is built in a way that allows for insulation, ventilation and lighting naturally. Now that’s innovative thinking!
