In the peaceful scenery of the former village of Markusevec (which grew over the years to become a part of Zagreb), the Russian client asked for a middle-class residential settlement. The general urban layout respects the rooted paths leading to the centre of the village. The housing units are accumulated along these lines. A public playground is set as the terminal point on the other end of the route. Taking the rural scale as a point of departure, the typology of semi-detached houses has been recombined into a series of compact rural mats - flat, introverted, and dense. The lots are not regular but tailored to meet the area of a 600m2 minimum. The setbacks on the second floors are generated by the rule for the maximum attic area that limits the surface to 75% of the typical floor. By avoiding to have such a typical floor, an arithmetical average of the two lower floors could be taken.
