Reminds me of WoZoCo / by Michelle Linden

The project shown above is a recently completed social housing project on the coast in Izola, Slovenia. In many ways it seems like the architects (Ofis) have learned from MVRDV's WoZoCo (shown below) and used the knowledge gained to create a new and exciting project. Both apartment complexes are for people with modest incomes (social housing and senior housing), both use color to individualize the units and excite both occupants and visitors, and both use balconies and projected spaces to great dynamic effect. The Ofis apartments also take great care to protect the inhabitants from harsh sunlight and intrusive neighbors. I must say that I love them both!
