Elevated Streets

What if one day the streets are up in the sky? What if the concept of an ”apartment” can go beyond one building?.

I want to imagine a life where I wake up in my bedroom, and walk across the walkway to the other building to have my breakfast in the kitchen. Why can’t it be that flexible? Security issues?  maybe…

Here in this project, the case is different. Hungarian architecture practice atelier peter kis has designed a multi-storey mixed-use complex in the józsefváros district of budapest. ‘práter street’ accommodates shops and retail opportunities on the ground level with apartment units from the first to sixth floor.

The extended terraces allow the circulation inside the building to extend to the neighbor one.
