Discussion Maisons Jaoul Commentary

"A narrow walkway slopes up from the street to entrances off a shared patio. The buildings are carefully positioned at right angles to one another on the site, with strategic setbacks from all the property lines, except to the south. There, unit A abuts the wall of an adjacent building. The result is a sequence of increasingly private outdoor spaces."
