Both the top and bottom volumes are divided into 10m x 10m modules, which OFIS found to be the optimal amount of space for all of the different programs (housing, public, office, service, and garage).

Garden City K66 is divided into two layered volumes – a base which will house public programs and offices and upper floors that will be residential apartments. The stepped design of the upper floors creates niches where rooftop gardens and terraces can be placed. At the base, units are separated to create open squares that intermingle with the external plaza.

Both the top and bottom volumes are divided into 10m x 10m modules, which OFIS found to be the optimal amount of space for all of the different programs (housing, public, office, service, and garage). The modular grid affords the same kind of flexibility and adaptability that a shipping container structure might. This way, the distribution of programs can change quite easily according to the needs of the complex.
