Each of the twin triangular houses has its own courtyard, which are complemented with a shared communal space. The geometry of the development is based on a pinwheel arrangement that can also be read in their interior organization. Surrounded by 23 party walls and accessed via a long narrow passageway, Ott’s Yard features a whole spectrum of material and geometric qualities-from a hard center to soft edges, with a gradual change from brick to lush planting.

The two-story buildings are topped with a monopitch green roof that gently slopes toward its narrowest points. The roof is planted according to the same geometry, which creates an interesting effect that augments the geometric appearance of the buildings. The project was recently inaugurated with several exhibitions and parties and has proved perfect as a small venue for communal activities.
